Capital and financing
The Coalition for an Equitable Economy is a broad cross-sector coalition of stakeholders from across the state aligned around a shared commitment to building an equitable small business ecosystem and to the values of racial equity, collaboration, and shared leadership.
Ensure equitable access to capital, business networks, education, technical support and other resources for Black, Latinx, immigrant and low income small business owners in Massachusetts.
Build on the foundation of existing assets, a highly collaborative, innovative and effective ecosystem that delivers to diverse entrepreneurs the resources necessary to start, stabilize and grow profitable businesses that fuel the MA economy.
Dismantle racist structures that have prevented investment in and growth of diverse businesses.
We imagine a Commonwealth that aggressively cultivates and supports under-resourced small businesses to survive the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic, and makes sustained investment to make Massachusetts a welcoming and fertile place for such businesses to grow their capacity, resilience, economic power and impact.
STEERING COMMITTEE MEMBERS
Our coalition is guided by a Steering Committee who represent organizations focused on serving the Coalition’s target businesses. At all times, a majority of Steering Committee members will be people who identify as Black, Latinx, Indigenous, or a member of another historically under-resourced demographic group.
