"We're trying to show through our investment strategy that you can redevelop a community without gentrifying it," 548 Capital CEO AJ Patton, recently named one of Midwest Energy News' 40 under 40, told the Real Deal. "Energy efficiency has always paid for itself, it's just that no one has ever had the patience to make that commitment to low-income communities."
Register to attend the Opportunity Zone Boot Camp & Pitch Competition in Newark on October 17 at NJIT in downtown Newark, NJ and see Mr. Patton share his passion and vision for a more sustainable, affordable future for residents in Chicago Opportunity Zones in a live-fire national pitch competition. Alongside other OZ contestants, this open project competition places real people pitching real projects in front of OZ redevelopment experts to judge who presents the most compelling and impactful OZ investment opportunity.
Winners will be announced and prizes awarded in a reception that follows.
