Mayor's Office Exploring New Heartland Capital Roundtable to Reinvest in the City and Region


Heartland Capital Strategies (HCS) and the Office of Mayor Martin Walsh’s in Boston co-hosted an invitation-only Heartland Capital Roundtable at the prestigious Parkman House on Beacon Hill in Boston on Wednesday.  The Parkman House is an historic landmark on Beacon Hill and was once a residence for some of Boston’s most important Mayors.
