The University of Birmingham’s Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME) will be hosting a workshop to bring participants up to date on current research in this rapidly changing area and discuss emerging challenges of research and policy. The workshop is supported by the university's Institute of Advanced Studies.
CREME will be putting forward answers to these key questions:
What are the key barriers for ethnic minority entrepreneurs?
What solutions exist to overcome real or perceived barriers to diverse entrepreneurship?
Can the EU do more to support minority ethnic businesses?
The events will:
Outline key developments in migrant and ethnic minority business research;
Promote its leading-edge knowledge exchange vehicle, the Enterprise and Diversity Alliance (EDA) which has established itself as the United Kingdom’s leading knowledge exchange network on diversity and entrepreneurship. The corporations, finance providers and professional associations that comprise its membership are committed to ‘making diversity and enterprise everyone’s business’.
Seek to contribute to on-going policy development at the EU level on ethnic entrepreneurship.
