Learn about MORTAR, a new program to help urban entrepreneurs succeed


It can be difficult for urban entrepreneurs to start new, or maintain existing, businesses, especially without a business background or access to resources. MORTAR is a new program to help low-income urban entrepreneurs build or expand their businesses, using a nine-week entrepreneurship course designed to provide them with the tools to help them grow, as they better their communities.

Joining us to discuss MORTAR are Allen Woods, one of the three MORTAR co-founders;  Sean Rhiney, director of The Eigel Center for Community-Engaged Learning at Xavier University; and, Brian Jackson with Esoteric Brewing Company, the MORTAR Pitch Night Judges’ winner.
