Key takeaways from On the Table MKE discussions

Entrepreneurship & Wealth Creation

  • Trust and fund BIPOC businesses by fully investing in community development financial institutions (CDFIs), removing barriers to accessing capital, expanding support from corporations and addressing racism in risk assessment practices for lending
  • Support business education and training, including financial literacy, branding and marketing, business models and planning, back office and technical support
  • Change the narrative by emphasizing the unique value of BIPOC businesses and how they create their own markets outside of the mainstream
