Why We Need More Minority and Women Entrepreneurs, Thrive Global

Abstract

Investment in under-represented minority and women leaders and their companies is a tangible way to increase opportunity — not only in funding the businesses and leaders themselves but also in terms of the jobs these enterprises create. Greater progress will take more than marginal or side-project investment commitments, of course. Only a marked up-tick in market demand from VCs and others for startups that offer unique ideas from diverse entrepreneurs will truly move the needle on making our investment landscape better reflect the talent and diversity of entrepreneurs and enterprises across the United States.
