After years of consulting for places around the country, Glenn committed to being active in his own community.
In 2012, after moving to western New York, Glenn instigated the Rochester Improvement Society: a thinly veiled drinking club that brought together champions of the city. The relationships this built helped connect earnest people and break down silos between organizations. Around the same time he formed Rochester Local Capital to invest in local businesses. And in 2014 he launched Hart’s Local Grocers, downtown’s first full service grocery store in 20 years. In 2015 he supported friends and developers staging Retailent Rochester, a shark-tank storefront business competition with the prize of free rent for a year.
Returning to Washington DC in 2020, Glenn currently serves on the advisory board of his local Main Street.
