Nearly all groups of entrepreneurs of color experienced significant growth in the number of their firms from 2007 to 2012, but for many sales declined, Algernon Austin found in his recent report, “The Color of Entrepreneurship: Why the Racial Gap among Firms Is Costing the U.S. Billions.”
Helping entrepreneurs of color grow their businesses is essential to building their communities and strengthening the American economy, as the country become more racially and ethnically diverse. We need to support these entrepreneurs so they can create jobs and spark economic growth.
This webinar will address opportunities to expand economic security through local programs that support all residents—something especially important in communities of color.
