The COVID-19 pandemic and the racial reckoning within the United States have revealed vast disparities in investment and support for businesses and entrepreneurs of color in our communities. With small businesses being the backbone of local and regional economies, EDO’s can work with and support entrepreneurs and businesses of color by breaking down barriers. This webinar will provide an overview of the issue at hand, discussing the barriers faced by entrepreneurs and business owners of color and demonstrate why diversifying entrepreneurial ecosystems is essential for our economy. Speakers on this webinar will also showcase the work they have done in their communities and regions to help entrepreneurs of color and their businesses receive the support they need and flourish.
