Urban Entrepreneur Partnership Centers

By Delores Jones

Kansas City, MO – Recent data from the Kauffman Foundation shows that minority-owned businesses have grown substantially since the 1980s. However, they are disproportionately in no-growth and low-growth sectors. Kauffman Foundation President Carl Schramm addresses the disparity. And Kansas City Urban League President Gwendolyn Grant speaks about the newly formed program which provides resources, coaching and opportunities to minority entrepreneurs.
