Black-Owned Business Luncheon: 12/19/2016

On the afternoon of December 19th, a group of Black Business Owners came together at YeYo Arts Collective to network with other business owners and learn from a panel of business leaders and industry professionals about how to grow and sustain their business. Co-hosted by Out Hrr Events, Dutchtown South Community Corporation and Rise Community Development, the event provided a platform for business owners to discuss their ideas and vision, as well as ways to collaborate — all of which will be incorporated into the Gravois-Jefferson Historic Neighborhoods Plan.

Our next steps include surveying a few more Black-Owned Businesses who could not attend and continuing to amplify the great work of our local businesses. If you have ideas forfuture meet ups, promotional events or collaborations, don’t hesitate to reach out!
