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 #2 Description:
For growth, businesses need capital. Immigrant entrepreneurs and those of color face well-documented barriers in accessing capital from mainstream banks, and non-profit CDFI business lenders play a critical role in meeting their capital needs.

Join us for a look at some of the resources available that can help food businesses grow and find markets, and learn more about the critical connection between capital and place-based sustainability.
