Welcome! The purpose of the Minority Entrepreneurship Ecosystem (M.E.E.) is to create a platform that allows the promotion of equity and inclusion in entrepreneurship and startup creations. The goal is to provide a hub for all those within the ecosystem to communicate, share knowledge and research, identify, acquire, and allocate resources to underrepresented entrepreneurs, especially within the minority population. An entrepreneurial venture is only as strong as the community from which it operates. This group is for anyone who wants to strengthen the entrepreneurship ecosystem by providing capital, funding opportunities, or expert advice in the creation and sustainability of startups. Other topics to be discussed include but are not limited to offering best practices and new approaches to doing business in the wake of COVID-19 and other unforeseen pandemics; avenues for research and the creation and delivery of entrepreneurship curriculum or training programs; suggestions for policies and initiatives needed to level the playing field for all entrepreneur; and ways to invest in innovation to solve real-world problems through business ownership and firm creation. Please feel free to join us online for live-streamed meetings and other networking events. Hope to see you there.
