Chatham County’s recent “Minority Entrepreneurial and Small Business Assessment” report concluded that as a result of, “the stark pattern of racial segregation and institutional distrust as well as obstacles stemming from efforts to manage growth, minority entrepreneurship and small business development has been uneven in Chatham County. “
If Chatham County’s BIPOC entrepreneurs are to succeed, they must have channels to the resources and opportunities from which they are currently disconnected.
Webb Squared’s new Entrepreneurship Hub is a game-changing initiative that will help disrupt systemic barriers and open up new pathways for BIPOC businesses and their communities to flourish.
The Hub will aggregate entrepreneurial resources locally and statewide, and provide help navigating these paths to open doors to capital and lending opportunities, networking events, educational workshops, pitch contests, consulting services, industry-specific workshops – and more.
The Hub will connect our entrepreneurs to initiatives in government and business to secure minority participation/supplier diversity in procurement and contracting.
The Hub will provide a continually updated list of entrepreneurial and small business supports, including resources that exist at the state and federal levels of government as well as in banks and other private sector entities.
WEBB Squared’s Entrepreneurship Hub will provide a viable path to prosperity for all Chatham County’s entrepreneurs.
Your support is critical in our pursuit of a more equitable society.
