Entrepreneurship in the Melting Pot
LIBA is all about indie biz, and we know that owning an independent business is a viable option for recent immigrants to make a living. Many of these businesses have become some of Louisville’s most iconic brands, like Kizito Cookies, Zen Garden, etc.
We have a panel of speakers who will share success stories, how immigrant businesses strengthen a neighborhood and the community overall, and ways that we can support these businesses.
