Walker’s Legacy will celebrate National Women’s Small Business Month in multiple cities with its Funding Your Entrepreneurial Dreams program to discuss and explore financing options for women-of-color-owned small businesses. The program will discuss resources to best finance, grow, and scale the entrepreneurial efforts of these women.
Nearly 8 out of every 10 new women-owned firms launched over the past nine years have been founded by women of color, making them the fastest growing segment of entrepreneurs. Given recent business trends, this number is expected to continuously increase.
Despite the substantial growth among this community of entrepreneurs, there is a great disparity that persists in accessing capital. Through this programming, women of color will celebrate their growth in entrepreneurship and learn about the best options to fund and grow their businesses.
Stay tuned for a complete list of participating cities and register for Washington DC, Philadelphia, PA, or Detroit, MI here.
