DBP Webinar: Resilient Downtown Brooklyn
Downtown Brooklyn Partnership recently released its Resilient Downtown Brooklyn report, based on interviews and surveys conducted in May 2020 with dozens of Brooklyn founders, business leaders, and industry executives representing a wide variety of sectors and firm sizes. Key findings illustrated that while the COVID-19 pandemic posed deep economic challenges for many businesses, firms are committed to the borough and remain optimistic – with nearly a quarter reporting growth with continued hiring and recruiting since mid-March.
As NYC hits the road to recovery and looks ahead to 2021, this webinar offers the opportunity to hear from Brooklyn’s business leaders about the challenges facing their businesses today, new opportunities for growth, their outlook on returning to the office, and how the public and private sectors can best provide support.
Please join us from 2:00pm - 3:00pm for this live-streamed panel discussion and Q&A, moderated by DBP President, Regina Myer, featuring a panel of executives from top Brooklyn-based firms.
