Street Talk, a Month of Progress
Wednesdays from 11am to 1pm
SOVA Espresso and Wine
1359 H Street
Have you wondered about the weekly Street Talk meetings at Sova? The purpose of these meetings is to bring together entrepreneurs, investors, and landlords with an eye toward bringing retail, and related businesses, to H Street. What types of businesses have come up so far? A co-op bakery, bike repair and sales, a funky custom clothing boutique, a skateboard shop/skate park, and much more. There are opportunities (I still need to get more details on this part) for financial help for eligible businesses. Two types of businesses that are I'm told are not eligible for the (gov) financial assistance: cell phone stores amd salons / barbershops.
