DSLBD is relaunching Aspire Stakeholders, a regular, open stakeholders meeting on the topic of support for justice-involved entrepreneurs.
The Aspire to Entrepreneurship pilot program is a broad collaboration between DC government agencies, federal agenceis, local non-profits, and community volunteers to support justice-involved residents into entrepreneurship. Through business development training and support, aspirants work towards entreprenuership as empowerment.
Stakeholders is always an open venue—all are welcome to particpate. Stakeholders are encouraged to raise ideas, topics, and questions for the agenda.
To find out more about the Aspire program or for accomodations, please feel free to reach out to Kate Mereand at Katherine.Mereand-Sinha@dc.gov or call 202-727-3900.
DSBLD's Innovation & Equitable Development Office will host a half day Hackathon and demo day to support projects that support reentry and entrepreneurship. Building off the Aspire to Entreprenuership program and the December all-stakeholders round table, this event is for anyone would like to learn more about local equitable business development and support community-led efforts.
