In partnership with the Microbusiness Connection Center, Women's Business Center of Utah, Salt Lake County, and Utah State University, the International Rescue Committee is hosting the New American Dream Lab, a business pitch event for New American (former refugee and immigrant) entrepreneurs in the Salt Lake City area.
The goal of the event is to empower New American entrepreneurs and introduce the Salt Lake City business and broader community to diverse small business-owners who help to create a dynamic business landscape in Utah.
Fundraising efforts will directly benefit New American entrepreneurs who are participating in this event. Anything beyond our initial goal will support the work of the International Rescue Committee in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Structure of the event: Three finalists will be pitching their new or existing small business idea before an audience of New American business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs, and Salt Lake City's broader business community.
Interested in attending? New American Dream Lab is open to the public, and will take place on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 5:00-7:00pm at Church & State (370 S 300 E, Salt Lake City, UT 84111)
