    Pilsen’s Small Business Community: A Neighborhood Tour with Accion

    Friday, Oct 19, 2018 11:00 - 1:00 PM @ Café Jumping Bean
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Accion provides the capital, coaching, and connections small business owners need to create wealth and jobs throughout Illinois and Indiana. By providing neighborhood entrepreneurs with access to the tools of business ownership, Accion increases the capacity for entrepreneurs to build vibrant local businesses that fuel new employment, and ultimately, new pathways to increased prosperity for families in some of Chicago’s most challenged neighborhoods.

    In this Lab, join Accion for a tour of three local businesses in Pilsen by trolley and foot. Talk to the entrepreneurs who brought their visions to life and sample their wares (which often come in the form of tasty snacks!). Find out more about the challenges and triumphs each business owner faced and come away with a better understanding of Accion’s vision of economic opportunity, a deeper understanding of the Pilsen community, and insights for growing your own business

    Event venue is NOT ADA accessible. Dress for weather and walking. Event may be affected by weather. Trolley will leave from Belli's and return to the same location at the end of the lab.
