Details

Author and developer Jim Heid introduces his new book, Building Small, to share lessons learned about how Small was impacted, pivoted, and how it might benefit from the recent pandemic. Jim will share the definitional construct of Small and cover the economic development and resilience aspects of small as described in the book.

Hear from a panel of small developers about the challenges they faced during covid and how their business strategy is evolving as a result, covering questions including –

-     How did they manage through the global health crisis?

-     What were some of their key survival and pivot strategies?

-     How did they work with their tenants and/or landlords? 

The panelists will also cover the outlook for Small going forward. What is the value of the new appreciation for small, locally owned businesses, and how will that benefit Small developers? Will the emergency regulatory changes endure and provide benefit to the built environment? What will Small developers do differently in response to lessons learned from 2020?

 

Purchase Building Small ahead of the webinar at the ULI Bookstore.
