Capital Strategies Symposium
MCCD along side Mni Sota Fund and Shared Capital Cooperative in collaboration with the MN Small Business Administration District Office held a Capital Strategies Symposium today. The morning was full of insightful conversation on building a more inclusive finance system.
We were joined by leaders in lending, community and economic development, philanthropy, and government discussing shared ownership enterprises and advancing racial equity and wealth building in BIPOC communities.
Special thanks to our speakers and panelists!
