Minority and Women is a special interest group organized under the auspices of the Articles of Incorporation of the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) to promote and encourage the development and advancement of programs and services in the specific entrepreneurship field and to provide a forum for information exchange.
Improve the success rates of underrepresented and historically-excluded entrepreneurs through research, practice, and pedagogy.
To engage and assist entrepreneurship scholars, educators, and practitioners interested in advancing entrepreneurial opportunities and successful venture creation and growth for underrepresented and historically excluded groups of entrepreneurs. Acknowledging that these entrepreneurs face unique issues and obstacles, USASBE’s minority and women’s entrepreneurship SIG seeks to take the lead in developing pedagogy, conducting quality and meaningful research, streamlining practice and building external relations that increase participation and success rates for these groups of entrepreneurs.
