Building the Dream: The Entrepreneur’s Lonely Journey

Tuesday, October 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm • Organized By Husch Blackwell
Online Event


Entrepreneurialism is a journey—often riddled with pain and failure before a breakthrough. Most startups shutter before they get started, and even those founders who make it beyond the startup phase say the financial, mental and emotional toll can be crushing.

Husch Blackwell’s Communities for Change initiative is hosting a virtual event to examine the struggles of minority-entrepreneurialism and offer timely and practical legal information to those on the journey. The session will provide helpful tips for small business leaders to help them succeed.

Husch Blackwell cordially invites you to join them to hear from a panel of entrepreneurs and business attorneys for Building the Dream: The Entrepreneur’s Lonely Journey.

This virtual event will offer an overview on subjects critical to minority entrepreneurs. Topics covered include business formation, contracting, real estate and financing.

Quinncy McNeal, Pro Bono Counsel
Kirstin Pace Salzman, Partner

Casey Kidwell, Senior Associate

Guest Presenters
