    Chestney Smith Muhammed owns Chef Ches’ Kitchen Express on East Rosedale. He is excited to see a focus on his neighborhood.

    "We need it, because we are underrepresented," Muhammed said.

    Muhammed said there is limitless possibility in these neighborhoods and the "urban dollar" should not be underestimated.

    "We have money, because we have money to spend outside the neighborhood," Muhammed said. "We are trying to keep it inside and recycle it and we can best recycle it by establishing businesses that best support our neighborhood needs."

    Muhammed would like to see the city provide small business grants and seminars for would-be business owners in the community.

    A complete list of events and registration information is available at the Global Entrepreneurship Week Fort Worth website.
