Small Business Owners, Econ Dev Professionals, Investors: Register for Opportunity Zones Workshop

Are you a small business owner? Economic development professional? Real estate developer? Or a potential investor? Register for our Opportunity Zones Workshop!  
Last December, federal lawmakers created the federal Opportunity Zones program for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into Opportunity Funds - private investment vehicles dedicated to community, business, real estate, and economic development activities in America's lowest-income communities.
This month, the Connecticut Economic Resource Center (CERC), Pullman & Comley, the Southeastern Connecticut Enterprise Region (seCTer), and the Norwich Community Development Corporation (NCDC) invite you to learn more about the new federal Opportunity Zones program and how to grow business through long-term investments in low-income communities.
This event will provide a comprehensive background and expert analysis of the new program, as well as recommendations for cities, philanthropies, advocates, and private sector representatives interested in Opportunity Fund creation, operation, and management and equitable development outcomes throughout our nation's 7,927 newly designated Opportunity Zones.
