I spoke at the 16th annual New Market Tax Credits conference

Economic empowerment in underdeveloped communities can benefit from the wonkily named federal New Market Tax Credit program. Now often used for property development, it has a legacy with supporting operating businesses in economically depressed parts of the country.

I spoke last month at the 16th annual New Market Tax Credits conference held in Miami, and I offered  perspective on how tech communities are growing up adjacent to these communities of need.

People liked my sneakers. The conference was fun and full of smart people.
