Many aspiring entrepreneurs, especially those who live in distressed communities, lack the runway capital – funds for space, materials, and support – needed to launch their business.
Access to capital is lacking in underserved & minority communities. Even with similar credit scores & net worth, Black entrepreneurs are 3X less likely to be approved for loans than white peers.
We need an #EntrepreneurCorps to build the next generation of small businesses. BUILD.org is proud to sponsor the Next Generation Entrepreneurship Corps Act by Senator Chris Coons, Senator Tim Scott, Rep. Troy Balderson, and Rep. Jason Crow.
