In an effort to more deeply understand the experiences and needs of entrepreneurs in the city of Atlanta, the United Way of Greater Atlanta will host a series of conversations to hear directly from entrepreneurs leading amazing businesses and scaling economic growth and equity for their communities. These roundtable dialogues will connect entrepreneurs to resources that advance their work and help UWGA understand how they might develop their economic development strategy and funding priorities to support more BIPOC business in the city of Atlanta. We hope you will support us by attending and sharing your expertise, needs and expectations for partners.

For each roundtable of the series, we are inviting businesses and their senior leaders to serve as hosts. This can include hosting a session, inviting businesses from your sector and/or community to participate or posting information on the dates and times for sessions at your business, on your website or on your social media platforms.
Please note organizations will receive confirmation for their session and location no later than one week prior to their session. All sessions will take place in downtown Atlanta.
