    While the current attention to racial inequity has helped to shine a spotlight on Black entrepreneurs, they have historically faced challenges due to practices limiting their access to resources. Bias makes it difficult for Black entrepreneurs to get in front of investors, given investor preferences to support founders similar to themselves. Encouraging Black entrepreneurship on a local or regional level also requires systemic attention to eliminating barriers and providing access to funding and mentoring. This session will discuss how current founders and investors, financial institutions, and community-based advocacy organizations can help Black entrepreneurs be successful.
