Advancing Places: Inclusive Entrepreneurship

Overview: Inclusive entrepreneurship describes the practice of supporting entrepreneurs – from home-based to brick and mortar to scaling – regardless of their identity and background. It centers the unique needs of entrepreneurs from underrepresented or marginalized groups who have historically faced lending discrimination, exploitation by landlords, lack of resources and limitations on the networks they need to thrive.

Supporting a healthy, vibrant, and diverse tenant mix requires additional, targeted strategies for recruiting, cultivating, and retaining local small businesses. Join this session and explore successful methods UPMOs have used to support inclusive entrepreneurship.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Improving Capital readiness.
  • Easing access to commercial spaces.
  • Developing programs for business retention and sustainability.
