Urban Libraries Council
The face of the 21st-century entrepreneur is changing. More people of color, immigrants and women are entering the entrepreneurship arena, establishing innovative business models, strengthening their local economies and challenging systemic cultural barriers that have traditionally limited business opportunities for these populations.
Join ULC for a new webinar on May 29 at noon ET to learn about the unique role that public libraries can play in leveling the playing field for entrepreneurs and cultivating a richer, more robust environment for local businesses. During this webinar, attendees will hear how libraries participating in ULC’sStrengthening Libraries as Entrepreneurial Hubs initiative have successfully engaged local entrepreneurs from traditionally underrepresented communities, and taken ownership of their niche in the local entrepreneurial ecosystem.
