Mission: Raise critical awareness and support for the Temporary Business and Entrepreneurship Act of 2012.
The Bill: Last October Councilmember Tommy Wells introduced the “Temporary Business Entrepreneurship Act of 2012,” which would make it easier for entrepreneurs to test ideas and engage in business activity without significant up-front costs. Additionally, it promotes livelier streets, public spaces, and neighborhoods – creating opportunity and interest where today we see vacant buildings and dead spaces.
Local Partners: The Office of Council Member Tommy Wells, Raise Your City, DC Entrepreneur Week, No Kings Collective, Union kitchen, Listen Local First, verdeHouse, 1776, BBQ Bus DC, Pink Line Project and Brightest Young Things!
