Removing Barriers To Accessing Capital 
A Roundtable with Bridgeway Capital 

Lack of access to capital is often cited as one of the primary barriers facing Black businesses. Join Bridgeway Capital and the Greater Warren-Youngstown Urban League for a roundtable discussion on what types of capital and resources entrepreneurs in Warren and Youngstown need to start up or grow small businesses. Bridgeway Capital will share what makes their people-driven financing accessible. They would like to learn from you about the barriers and opportunities in growing your business - and how they can help.

The session will take place on December 2nd, from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM at Rivergate High School in the James “Doc” Pugh Center for Entrepreneurship and Wealth Creation Room at 458 Franklin St SE Warren, OH 44483.

Message From The President & CEO

The Greater Warren Youngstown Urban League has been a change agent for our community since 1930. Throughout the years, we partnered with corporate sponsors, volunteers, organizations, and the community to carryout the mission of the league.


Our mission is to enable African-Americans and other underserved urban residents to secure economic self-reliance, parity, power, and civil rights.  I am excited about the new strategic plan we are rolling out this year to align with our vision.

I am grateful for the Urban League movement, our team, and the opportunity we have in empowering communities and changing lives.

-Thomas Conley
