Ground Up PDX, founded by Julie Sullivan and Carolyn Cesaro, is a for-profit business intent on training disadvantaged women in the Greater Portland area in marketable skills through the production and sales of delicious & nutritious nut butters! They take a holistic approach to empowerment, offering personal development services and mentoring during the workday. Ground Up's goal is for women to engage in creative self-expression with the hope of gaining confidence and realizing their full potential. Women will work with Ground Up for 6-9 months and then transition into full-time employment at Portland-area businesses.

Ground Up believes that it is wiser to teach a woman to fish, than to feed her fish. Rather than fundraising, their energy goes towards producing meaningful, quality products that create jobs and provide a platform for skills training. 

They just happen to make amazing nut butters!
