Real prosperity starts here
Founded in 2002, BALLE is the first and leading organization dedicated to leveraging local business to solve our communities’ toughest challenges and to unleash real prosperity.
With a growing network of 30,000 local entrepreneurs spanning 80 communities, we’re leveraging our collective voice to drive new investment, scale the best solutions and harness the power of locally owned, independent business to transform the communities where we work and live. We are BALLE – and real prosperity starts here.
