Brooklyn: Sky’s the Limit

By David Reiss

Brooklyn Law School’s Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship is hosting a Networking Reception with Panel Discussion to Follow on April 12th from 6 to 8:30 pm. The panel discussion is entitled, Brooklyn: Sky’s the Limit:

The Borough of brownstones and warehouses continues to emerge as a global powerhouse with a skyline that may soon rival that of the Manhattan. From the world’s largest roof farm to drone design and launch, to dynamic architectural environments in which Brooklyners live, work, and play, the Borough is taking its place as one of the most innovative and entrepreneurial urban areas in the world. The numerous ventures driving these and other pioneering efforts in Brooklyn are raising novel legal, policy, business, and societal issues that generate opportunities for growth along with some growing pains.

Join Brooklyn Law School and the Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) for a lively panel discussion that explores these phenomena and their impact on the lives, environment, and flourishing businesses of the Borough and its growing and diverse population.
