The Color of the Capital Gap: Increasing Capital Access for Entrepreneurs of Color in Massachusetts

This webinar and report documents the wealth gap that hinders the ability of entrepreneurs of color to significantly grow their businesses. That gap is driven in large part by homeownership trends and policies over generations that have made homeownership more difficult and less common for people of color. Since 98 percent of small business capital is in the form of loans backed by home value or personal wealth, it follows that the wealth gap is mirrored in the capital gap.
