placeholderIn this 1-hour webinar, ILSR’s Stacy Mitchell and others present on how cities can protect and strengthen urban entrepreneurship and local businesses amid rising rents and growing development pressure.

Organized by the Municipal Arts Society of New York’s Committee for Urban Entrepreneurship, this webinar also features Carol Coletta of the Knight Foundation, Robert Elmes of Galapagos Art Space, and Raj Thakkar of FOREsight: Financial Services for Good. The discussion focuses on the ways in which the spatial city – how it is planned, designed, zoned, and regulated – impacts the entrepreneurial environment.

Stacy Mitchell’s portion of the presentation begins at 25:30.
