The Urban Wallstreet is your online source for Business news, entrepreneurial inspiration and empowerment.

Message from our Chief Executive Officer:

Growing up in North Philadelphia was rough.  If you asked anyone who was raised in this environment they would tell you there were plenty of obstacles to face, especially in the educational sector. For example, the public school system is very broken, large class sizes, underpaid teachers, limited financial resources, etc. The drop out rate  and the likelihood of going to prison or being found dead by the age of 21 is significantly high.

I saw the world around me and knew I wanted more then was offered. I began to study Business and became empowered by great men such as Warren Buffett, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Michael Bloomberg, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Robert Kiyosaki and so much more. I attended Temple University and graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration. I’ve been a recipient of many awards (Executive Leadership Council National Business Essay Contest Winner, Hispanic Heritage Journalism Award) and I have sat on various Committees in the non-profit sector (Episcopal Community Services Merit Pay Bonus Committee).

I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge and frequently got inspired by those I read about. The Urban Wallstreet became an idea to let my interest become an interest to others. This site is built to empower, inspire and educate you the viewer on everything having to do with starting, managing and creating a legacy with your own business or idea. The world is what you make of it and in the famous words by well-known business philosopher Napoleon Hill “what your mind can conceive, you can achieve”. No one has the authority to tell you what you can or cannot do in the realms of making your dreams come true.

The Urban Wallstreet is not only a website but a lifestyle brand that embodies inspiration, empowerment and will power to not only follow your dreams but to create a legacy for generations to come.

Best Regards,

Darryl Irizarry, Chief Executive Officer
