Webinar Series Introduction:
Food sustains us - everyone needs to eat. For many new business owners, food entrepreneurship also means family-sustaining wages. Add a dash of passion, need, and economic security and what you have is a recipe for building wealth in immigrant communities and communities of color.
The ecosystem in which a business operates has an enormous influence on its success. The five Cs of a strong Local Entrepreneurship Ecosystem are: Coaching, Capital, Connections, Climate, and Culture. Our webinar series will explore three of the 5C’s, (Coaching, Capital, and Climate).
Join us for this New York focused webinar series, that is food for thought on how to support emerging entrepreneurs and transform the entrepreneurial environment for immigrant families and families of color engaged in small business activity. The ultimate goal is to ensure our food entrepreneurs are successful and communities are sustainable.
Webinar #3 Description:
Small business owners are critically important contributors to local economies and many of our immigrant entrepreneurs and those of color are small business owners. The viability of small businesses is connected to the vibrancy of the neighborhood where the small businesses are located.
When it comes to food-based businesses, policy, laws and regulations play a BIG role. Local policies on everything from community investments, zoning and land use, licensing and permitting and more, create the climate that can either support or hinder small business economic growth.
Join us to find out what advocates and governments can do to ease the burden on food entrepreneurs and foster start-ups and growth.
