S3 Episode 2: The History and Future of ROC USA with Andrea Levere

Twenty-two years ago, Andrea Levere met Paul Bradley for the first time, before ROC USA was established. Paul worked at the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund and proposed an idea for the Corporation for Enterprise Development’s grant program, where Andrea was the vice president. Just seven years after CFED, which today is Prosperity Now, invested in Paul’s idea, ROC USA was founded and Andrea became the chair of the ROC USA Board.

Now, fifteen years after ROC USA’s start, Andrea reflects on how it all began, discussing the time and effort involved and the fun that was had amid the hard work. She reminisces about and raises up ROC leaders she’s had the pleasure of interacting with, and she looks to the future, projecting more great things to come at ROC USA.
