About this Event

The Lab at ConnCORP is a learning & knowledge center: a laboratory for new ideas about business ownership & entrepreneurship. Through our business incubator and programming, we facilitate wealth creation and financial security within the urban community, forming the ecosystem for minority business growth and increased home ownership.
