FYI, my business is not Foursided, it's called Neighborly and features products sourced from Chicago and the Midwest. We're in the Ravenswood neighborhood not Lakeview, which is decently affluent but is more rental than ownership, median household income is $57k. I came to Chicago with nothing, but yes a college degree, and I started my business when Schulter was in the office, not Pawar, although I don't feel my local alderman had any effect on my ability to start a business in this city. It really is the cost of doing business, considering the space I need to make my product, that is what makes Chicago so accommodating, from a business owners perspective, besides the supportive community.
