The Minority Entrepreneurs Association overall vision is to revolutionize the business field to reflect a diverse world and channel this entrepreneurial empowerment to fuel economic prosperity for disadvantaged communities. By providing education, guidance, and investment, we are building an international network of business leaders across the world to fuel this cycle of innovation. We will provide the means for every minority to turn their ideas into realities.
For years minority entrepreneurs have been held back by disunity, lack of mentorship, diminished access to capital, and weak foundations. Now more than ever, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these weaknesses and people are struggling to survive financially.
Through this struggle, we realized that there was no community directly devoted to facilitating minority businesses to flourish from inception. We wanted to do more than make money. We wanted to build leaders, teams, and communities, working together to execute a common vision that we are proud to stand by. As a result, a team of community focused Minority Entrepreneurs consisting of industry professionals, educators, investors, and students unified to start the namesake organization.
