How Small Businesses Can Rebuild the U.S. Economic Engine

May 14 @ 11:00 - 12:00 CDT

A conversation with Craig Hall and Janie Barrera on rebuilding the economy through small business opportunities and employment

Small businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy, representing more than half of all employment in the nation, and are key to the nation’s future prosperity especially for entrepreneurs of color. You’re invited to join a conversation with entrepreneur Craig Hall and LiftFund CEO and President Janie Barrera as they explore ways to rebuild the economy through small business opportunities and employment. As Craig Hall writes, “Big business, with its prioritization of short-term wins for shareholders, will not save the American economy. Today, with millions of Americans out of work and millions more young people entering the labor market each year, their best hope for a job may be to start new businesses. Now is the time to commit to a new platform that will build our country back better, beginning with entrepreneurial opportunity for all Americans.”
