Black Women Business Owners’ Struggles and Survival Strategies

As entrepreneurship interventions and initiatives consider other ways to assist new business owners, I hope they consider challenges impacting Black women, specifically. Resources like mentoring, networking workshops, and education related to combating racial and gender discrimination for other owners could alleviate certain problems impacting Black women’s experience with business ownership. Providing the tools to be successful in crowdsourcing, participating in pitch competitions, and juggling full-time employment with personal businesses would also aid Black women entrepreneurs.
