Opportunity Zones are a federal community development tool that aim to drive more capital to low- and moderate-income areas of the country, including 176 tracts here in Tennessee, many of them home to emerging startups, incubators and tech transfer offices. Reinvesting capital gains in Opportunity Zones can earn federal tax benefits. Qualifying investments include startup and growth companies, real estate, retail and a variety of others. At this in-depth workshop, you’ll learn how to make this program work for your community, including guidance on receiving significant tax benefits while investing in the companies of tomorrow.
