(File) Inclusive Entrepreneurship: Accelerating the Entrepreneurial Potential of Black Canadians
In the first iteration of a series of informative papers, The Office of Senator Colin Deacon explores the best available practices to accelerate the economic potential of Black Canadians. Following engagements with several entrepreneurs, executive leaders and community members, we have gathered insights and information to support the thesis that the entrepreneurial potential of Black Canadians has been limited by several factors. In this paper we focus on highlighting existing gaps, emerging programs across the country that are exemplar, and areas of opportunity that could be further explored by entrepreneurs, community leaders, corporate executives and governments. This paper assesses the current state of Black entrepreneurship in Canada, emerging initiatives, and promising areas of focus for the future.
