Interise participates in the 86th Annual Meeting of the US Conference of Mayors in Washington, DC, where Director of National Programs Bernard Johnson will present to the Council on Metro Economies and the New American City.
During the session, Johnson will present on poverty and economic development, the top economic concern for mayors according to the 2017 Menino Survey of Mayors. Johnson draws insight from the Interise network and proven impact of second-stage growth companies. Small businesses in low- and moderate-income communities can create local wealth… if they achieve scale, resilience, and integration into regional, national and/or international markets. To achieve this, they need access to an equitable and inclusive ecosystem for second-stage businesses.
Interise’s proven model for small business growth alone leveraged the growth of 6000+ small business owners in 69 cities across the United States.
Johnson will share top insights from this report, prepared for the Council on Metro Economies and the New American City at the 85th Annual Meeting of the US Conference of Mayors. Read the reports with impact data and insights for more.
