OPPORTUNITY ZONES: WHAT DO INDIANA SMALL BUSINESSES NEED TO KNOW WEBINAR

In 2017, the federal government created the Opportunity Zones incentive, which encourages individuals and corporations to make tax-advantaged investments in federally designated low-income and economically distressed communities (“Opportunity Zones”).   On Jan. 23, 2020, small businesses owners and entrepreneurs were invited to join a free webinar, developed by the Opportunity Investment Consortium of Indiana, to learn more about Opportunity Zone equity investments and what it means for Indiana. Speakers and panelists addressed:

  • Opportunities and implications of Opportunity Zones for Indiana’s small business community

  • How small businesses might evaluate the tool in context of their growth trajectories

  • How Opportunity Zone investments couple with other small business tools and incentives

Guests heard from the following presenters: Indiana Economic Development Corporation, U.S. Small Business Administration Indiana District Office, Frost Brown Todd LLC, MCM CPAs & Advisors and Local Initiatives Support Corporation.
