Jessi Burg

​Jessi started her journey as an entrepreneur after a series of toxic work environments. She thought “surely, there has to be a way to value employees, pay a living wage, and still be able to work outside.” As she built her landscaping company, Pears to Perennials, she discovered being a business owner amplified her voice and began advocating for the trades, and seasonal and gig economy works. Now launching her second business, Outgrow Your Garage, she is building that advocacy work and teaching other trades, services and mobile companies how to grow sustainably and equitably.

As a values-driven business owner, Jessi absolutely adores proving that you can make a profit while breaking down class barriers. Through Outgrow Your Garage, Jessi is also able to support organizations that reduce recidivism through entrepreneurship. In the future, she plans to have multi-lingual programming, broadening access for recent immigrants.
