This Friday, the Bed-Stuy Gateway Business Improvement District (BID) is hosting a free back-to-school event to encourage young entrepreneurs. There will be free school supplies, giveaways, food, music and plenty of family-friendly fun between 5pm and 8pm on the corner of Marcy and Fulton. Local entrepreneurs are welcome! As the Facebook event says, “All entrepreneurs should come and serve as an inspiration to teens within our communities, that typically aren’t exposed to positive role models.” Check out event details here.
That brings us to our next order of business regarding the Bed-Stuy BID, which has started a new Facebook account and is looking to rebuild its following. You should follow the new account here for local events, happenings and general community engagement.
