The past year’s pandemic and time of racial reckoning have highlighted the unique challenges facing Black and Latino entrepreneurs. Rutgers has supported business owners of color through multiple initiatives, including the Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (CUEED) and the Black and Latino Angel Investment Fund.

In this webinar, hear from Rutgers–Newark chancellor Nancy Cantor and Lyneir Richardson, executive director of CUEED, about how Rutgers is making an impact through education, strategic partnerships, mentoring, and funding for entrepreneurs of color as they grow their businesses and help New Jersey communities flourish.

Moderated by Pavita Howe, director of entrepreneurship partnerships, Rutgers Corporate Engagement Center.
