Kojo In Your Community: Entrepreneurship East Of The River, 7/30

By Margaret Barthel

What does it take to open a business in a neighborhood that some residents feel has traditionally lacked shops, restaurants and entertainment? 

As development ramps up East of the River — a new sports and entertainment arena in Congress Heights, Busboys and Poets in Anacostia, along with smaller local businesses — are longtime business owners, new entrepreneurs, and job seekers able to take advantage of the new growth? What are the businesses that are setting up shop — and will they serve the community surrounding them? 

Join Kojo Nnamdi to talk about the landscape of local businesses, jobs and entrepreneurship in Ward 8. 

This is a free ticketed event. Register here.
