Fortune Examines Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Research

There are some valuable insights in this Fortune piece that cites recent research from Babson College and GEM about the evolving landscape of entrepreneurship in America: Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2015 US Report. Of note: African-American entrepreneurship may be on the rise, but African-American businesses may not persist as long as others because of lack of access to financial resources and capital. At VeraCloud, we know that accessing public sector contracting dollars can play a part in addressing this disparity, and and that access to these opportunities can be a powerful tool to help African-American owned (and other diverse businesses), grow and thrive.
