The New American Dream Lab hosted by the International Rescue Committee and sponsored by Comcast will be held February 27 to recognize New American entrepreneurs.

In partnership with the Microbusiness Connection Center, the International Rescue Committee in Salt Lake City is hosting the New American Dream Lab, a business pitch event for new American entrepreneurs in Salt Lake City, presented by Comcast. 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. 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. Business capital prizes, generously donated by Comcast, will be awarded to the finalists.

Event Held Virtually via Zoom
