Eve Picker is the founder of Small Change.
Her world has always been wrapped around cities and change. Her background as an architect, city planner, urban designer, real estate developer, community development strategist, publisher, and instigator has given her a rich understanding of how cities work, how urban neighborhoods can be revitalized, what policies are needed to do it, and the unique marketing that creates the buzz needed for regeneration.
Amongst her many urban (ad)ventures, she’s developed a dozen buildings in blighted neighborhoods (through the companies no wall productions and we do property management), founded a non-profit called cityLAB and built Pittsburgh’s first tiny house, organized a speaker series, launched a Pittsburgh e-zine called Pop City, and established downtown Pittsburgh’s first co-working space. She also co-founded Pittsburgh’s wildly successful Open Streets program.
Now with Small Change, Eve is bringing to market a transformation in how developers can raise capital and how community members can participate in the community development process by investing direct into community projects.
