L.E.G.A.C.Y Awards Gala Connects Chicago Businesses and Entrepreneurs
ChiBizHub Shares Valuable Resources and Tools with Local Businesses
In late February, WBC attended the L.E.G.A.C.Y Awards Gala at Malcom X College. The annual Gala highlighted Chicago leaders in multiple industries including leadership, education, growth, advocacy, community outreach, and youth.
WBC’s Neighborhood and Strategic Initiatives (NSI) team was also in attendance, where they shared information on all core initiatives and programs to drive inclusive growth in Chicago. Approximately 650 people attended the gala for both the programming and networking portion of the event.
ChiBizHub, WBC’s online portal offering resources, tools and classes for aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners was at the event and came away with many new connections. The ChiBizHub team spoke to many entrepreneurs looking to grow their business and signed up approximately 25 business owners for further collaboration.
“The LEGACY Awards Gala is a fantastic networking opportunity for local small businesses and entrepreneurs,” said Kendra Thomas, Manager ChiBizHub. “We were thrilled to make new connections and to help others secure access to the tools they need to grow and expand in Chicago.”
