Opportunity Zones, created by the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act , are designed to promote economic development and job creation in under-resourced neighborhoods and offer tax benefits to investors—but what do Opportunity Zones truly mean for entrepreneurs and small businesses, and what are the requirements for investment? The Kickoff Breakfast features a discussion from Emily Lecuyer, Managing Director of Equity Squared, Samuel Hasty, Managing Partner with Opportunity Hub and Luke Einsel, CEO of Thirsty Coconut and moderated by Tammy Buckner from WeGrowKC.
