Thanks to everyone who joined us for Capacity Building for Capacity Builders, a full-day workshop on June 6, 2024, that brought together more than 100 attendees from Chicago’s minority business technical assistance and capacity building ecosystem. Participants shared best practices, lessons learned, and strategies for success around cultivating an equitable entrepreneurial ecosystem of economic support.

Sponsored by Loyola University Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business, this capacity building workshop was developed in partnership with capacity builders to support collaboration, networking, and fostering meaningful connections. The event also provided professional development opportunities to amplify equitable economic development efforts in underserved communities.

This workshop is part of a three-year Quinlan School of Business project supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration to help address inequality and inequity across Chicago’s minority business ecosystem. About the project →
