Capital Access Roundtable: Centering Black and Hispanic Accelerators, Incubators, and Business Support Organizations

Wednesday, March 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm • Organized By Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Online Event


This Capital Access Prosperity research led by Dr. Heather Cameron in collaboration with the Kauffman Foundation, WEPOWER, and Washington University in St. Louis, started in 2020 as a 360 outlook (sampling Black and Hispanic entrepreneurs, investors, and accelerators) on increasing capital access for Hispanic and Black businesses.

This event is a roundtable that will center stakeholders in the capital access space (accelerators, incubators, and other Black and Hispanic business support programs). The aim is to share our findings, discuss, and identify various action steps.
