Supporting Black entrepreneurship in Canada
Share this story

To help create equal opportunity for entrepreneurs from the Black community and remove systemic barriers, Carleton University’s Black Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (BEKH) is partnering to explore the scope of Black entrepreneurship in Canada.   

Through community-based partnerships and research, BEKH aims to inform government policy and create national data and a knowledge platform on the state of Black entrepreneurship in Canada. 

BEKH will also bring together a network of stakeholders to co-lead research across sectors so community-led organizations can engage and partner with Black entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations and academic institutions.

“This new ISED-funded Black Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub is a clear and definitive example of developing infrastructure, recognizing the contributions of Black business owners to the Canadian economy, and building towards economic justice.”
