Ethnic minority businesses contribute an estimated £25 - £32* billion to the UK economy annually. The Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME) has transformed the 'perceptions' of ethnic minority entrepreneurs by working with business policy-makers and influential organisations to engage collaboratively with overlooked or disregarded business communities.
Headed by Professor Monder Ram OBE, CREME has built up an enviable reputation regionally, nationally and internationally for its pioneering research and business engagement activities, promoting diversity and enterprise. Based in the University of Birmingham Business School, CREME delivers leading-edge expertise on business support for ethnic minority entrepreneurs.

The latest news and updates from the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship.
- It's ten years since the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME), now operating at the heart of University of Birmingham's Business School, came into being.
- Existing sources bring about a patchy and incomplete picture of the volume and composition of ethnic minority businesses (EMBs) in the UK. In order to answer the question how can we quantify EMBs?, the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Enterprise (CREME, University of Birmingham) has organised an informal meeting with key researchers working in this area.
- The workshop entitled 'Inclusive Entrepreneurship: Innovations in Research and Practice' was held on the 9th and 10th of July 2014, and attracted re-searchers, practitioners, policy makers, members of the corporate and banking sectors and entrepreneurs, from 12 countries.
