“Our American economy will not grow if underserved entrepreneurs don’t build and grow businesses. We’re leaving economic potential on the table by having additional barriers for people starting businesses,” says Kauffman Foundation Program Officer, Natalie Self. "This community of grantees is building field-wide standards around what quality entrepreneurship support looks like, and how to help everyone get there. The organizations that are working on these equitable programs, policies, and practices today will inform the field of entrepreneurship support for years to come."
