In an effort to engage and empower a new generation of people, the city of West Hollywood is hosting “NextGen: Giving You the Business.” The event will connect local business owners and professionals with those looking to become part of West Hollywood’s vibrant business community. NextGen is passionate about a myriad of issues, yet this age group is disproportionately underrepresented at all levels of civic engagement.
The upcoming event will take place on Tuesday, November 13, 2018, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the WeWork space in the Pacific Design Center Red Building, located at 750 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Refreshments will be served.
A panel discussion will feature local business owners and professionals, who will share their experiences and insights about the City of West Hollywood’s business community and tips for working within the city. Attendees are encouraged to arrive at 6 p.m. to network before and after after the panel discussion ends at 8 p.m.
“West Hollywood is a creative hub, with a culture of imagination and innovation,” said Councilmember Lindsey P. Horvath. “Many of our NextGen community members are well-poised to start businesses here, but may not know where to begin. I’m committed to helping connect the NextGen to resources and information so they can thrive as new business owners in the City of West Hollywood. This event will facilitate impactful conversations and connections.”
The NextGen event is designed as a starting point for attendees who would like to get involved with civic life, and particularly people who are interested in being involved in the evolution of government programs and services in West Hollywood over the coming decades. The event is aimed at NextGen community members, but is open to everyone. Attendance is free, but RSVPs are requested.
