The Lehigh Valley Equitable Entrepreneurship Project strives to fuse connections between historically disadvantaged entrepreneurs, the Lehigh Valley’s vast economic development network, large businesses, and area financial institutions to improve equitable access to opportunities and capital through the Lehigh Valley. Market diversification and access to funding for growth and expansion are even more critical for small business success in a post-COVID economy but are even further out of reach for historically disadvantaged entrepreneurs. Through research, outreach, focus groups, and more, the Lehigh Valley Equitable Entrepreneurship Project will promote the region’s potential and capacity for local sourcing, supplier diversity, and equitable capital access.
