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.
