On Thursday, October 24th, Mayor Tom Barrett hosted his second listening session, this time with eight of the businesses who are participating in the Scalerator pilot program. With only one session left in the program, the group wanted to share some of their experiences from the past few months, as well as discuss their experience as a business owner in the Milwaukee area.
One discussion point that resonated with the group was the desire for the city to help facilitate networking opportunities for the businesses to better connect their services or products with the needs of others in the area.
Mayor Tom Barrett agreed that a “we’re all in this together” mentality was essential and emphasized his commitment to continue to be an ally in the efforts to “scale up” Milwaukee’s business community.
We asked a few of the participants to share their thoughts on the listening session, check out their videos below!
