New York, NY (PRWEB) January 12, 2007
(OTCBB: CCCN) -- City Capital Corporation CEO Ephren W. Taylor II served as guest panelist for the 10th Annual Wall Street Project Economic Summit. Over 4000 registrants and attendees were estimated to be present at this year's event, the largest of its kind. The event spanned four days of presentations, roundtables and strategy sessions featuring dozens of national business and political leaders.
Mr. Taylor was asked specifically to discuss what individuals and community leaders can do to economically empower individuals to succeed in America's urban communities. Mr. Taylor commented, "Our entire company is focused on empowering local communities as a business model. We have proven it is possible to build for-profit businesses that are economically-sound and socially-conscious -- that give back to local communities. Instead of looking outside our communities for assistance, we need to tap the incredible talent, resources and money within our urban communities and make positive changes ourselves."
City Capital recently signed a $50,000,000 equity line agreement with Rochester-based Lucien Group, to accelerate its community investment programs, and create affordable homes for working-class families.
