For many small business owners, the last few years were some of the toughest to start and maintain a new business. The COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain struggles, and the contracting of the global economy are all playing a part. But for Black and Brown entrepreneurs, finding success in their startups has its own unique set of systemic and structural challenges around investors, developers, access, and more.
In April, we spoke with two Black business leaders who have found success in their careers and now lead successful multimillion-dollar enterprises. We heard their stories and learned what it would take to create a more just economy.
Now, we will hear from local entrepreneurs who are in the midst of their startups. Danielle Sydnor, CEO at Rise Together Innovation Center will lead our panelists in conversation on what a more equitable future can look like for Black and Brown entrepreneurs.
The livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
