To train the next generation of entrepreneurs, look to HBCU

Entrepreneur is synonymous with privilege. Universities with the largest endowment in the United States, mostly predominantly white institutions, are the same schools that make up the largest number of funding founders.

Graduates and alumni of this school capitalize on institutional networks during their matriculation, and many are well-prepared to tackle the entrepreneurial journey after leaving college, enabled by interconnected, well-funded fundraisers that welcome them in open arms and pockets.

But when we say “entrepreneur”, who exactly are we talking about? Merriam-Webster’s defines an entrepreneur “The person who organizes, manages, and estimates the risks of a business or enterprise.”
