“What if we made not only our city a hub for innovation and entrepreneurship but our communities as well,” said Levels-Moore, who is also the founder of ASL Creative Firm, a program and project management company. “I believe that with more inviting workspaces and culturally competent education, communities could see more small business owners launch and scale. I’m excited and motivated to help small businesses reach new levels and pour back into this community.”
