Assistance for Under-Resourced Entrepreneurs

Social and economic injury that continues to the present day has resulted in many entrepreneurs being under-resourced and unable to start, operate, or grow a business. The US federal government provides access through the Small Business Act to special resources, services, and financing opportunities for under-resourced entrepreneurs and businesses owners.

In general, women and members of the racial/ethnic minority groups are presumed to be under-resourced and may be eligible for additional support from state and federal governments.
