Entrepreneurship as a Career Path for People of Color

This whitepaper highlights the importance of how adopting a mindset to viewing entrepreneurship as a career path will lead to creating wealth and legacy-building entrepreneurs in communities of color. Successful entrepreneurs that scale and remained in business past five years can increase economic power in underserved communities. The increased economic power leads to an amplified voice heard at the voting booth and in the public marketplace as a key factor driving political and policy change.

The study confirmed that while the concept of African-American thought leadership is not new, a growing portion of young people and young adults in Black, Indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC) groups are not aware of their rich history filled with examples of successful entrepreneurs.

This paper highlights the critical role that determined, passionate BIPOC have played in shaping our nation’s economic landscape for hundreds of years.
