Venture Jobs Foundation presents Prosperity Conference: Investing in Rochester’s Job Growth!
The time is now to leverage our many assets to drive job growth in Rochester. The flow of capital in our community must be improved so that small business owners and local entrepreneurs working in challenged neighborhoods have the capital, technical assistance and networks they need to succeed.
Unlocking the growth potential of these engines of economic recovery throughout Rochester is the key to driving job growth and creating a more inclusive and prosperous region. The VJF Prosperity Conference on June 1 st will shed light on what’s working here – and in communities like ours across the country – to ensure investments and knowledge are being effectively distributed to accelerate progress, align efforts and make sure that our collective actions are building a thriving Rochester.
