Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Doing Good in the Neighborhood: The Rise of Community-Based Incubators. We hope you enjoyed the discussion about the importance of local business incubators, centering neighborhood needs, and expanding access to resources and professional networks for BIPOC entrepreneurs. We look forward to continuing the conversation about how we can work together to create a social ecosystem that is supportive of everyone and how the community can continue to drive innovative business and opportunity.

If you were unable to join us on January 26, 2022, a recording is available below.
