Neighborhood Open House – November 7, 2022
Members of the local Harlem and Upper Manhattan community, as well as students, faculty, and staff from Columbia met one another for casual conversations, free-form idea sharing, and networking. As part of Professor Dan Wang’s Inclusive Entrepreneurship Initiative, this event helped neighbors meet each other and share the ambitions and perspectives of community members. Attendees enjoyed catering from local vendors Tres Leches Cafe and Evelyn’s Kitchen and live jazz from Soul Guard jazz band. The event featured introductory remarks from Professor Dan Wang, Kaaryn Simmons, Lacie Pierre ‘23, and community leaders.
This event was co-organized by the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise and Columbia-Harlem Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Columbia Business School, and the Office of Government and Community Affairs (GCA) at Columbia University.
