Welcome back to the IBJ Podcast. This week's themes are revival and reclamation.
Maria Bertram had a great career as an engineer for Eli Lilly and Co., so why did she decide to chuck it and open a small cafe in a distressed neighborhood? She had two goals: support the forces fighting to revive Englewood Village on the near-east side of Indianapolis and provide jobs for women who had hit bottom and were fighting to regain independence.
