Jack Dorsey is a co-founder of Twitter and founder and CEO of mobile payments processor Square.
He will appear at the Apollo Theater next week as part of Square’s nationwide “Let’s Talk” series.
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.
