Jack Dorsey is a co-founder of Twitter and founder and CEO of mobile payments processor Square.
The goal is to bring small businesses together to create a climate of collaboration.
“There is an electricity in Harlem especially around merchants who helped to stabilize the neighborhood,” said Dorsey, who added he visited Red Rooster just a few months ago. “We believe its our responsibility to not just build services and software but to make sure there is a venue for conversations.”
Seven Brown, owner of Harlem Skin Clinic, will sit on the panel along with the owners of Astor Row Cafe, Hue-Man Bookstore and the executive director of Maysles Institute.
The Harlem “Lets Talk” event will take place Tuesday, Dec. 17, starting at 6 p.m. at the Apollo Theater, 253 W 125th Street. Small business owners can RSVP here.
