Entrepreneurs' Roundtable: The Vision for Philadelphia Commerce in 2020
October 19, 8:30 - 10:00 AM

Harold T. Epps' 30 years as a local business leader has afforded him a unique understanding of the present challenges in Philadelphia that limit business growth and job creation. Epps is bringing that significant experience and credibility from the private sector to the public arena as Philadelphia’s newest Commerce Director. Epps comes to the position with a keen focus on promoting neighborhood business development, ensuring that all commercial corridors benefit from the city's economic resurgence.

SBN's October Entrepreneurs' Roundtable will host Mr. Epps for a discussion about "A Vision for Philadelphia Commerce in 2020." The program will start with a light breakfast and networking, feature an hour of moderated conversation between member businesses and the commerce director, and conclude with half an hour of general Q & A.
