Understanding Diversity Among Hispanic Women Entrepreneurs

According to Susana Martinez-Restrepo, PhD., CoreWoman and Geri Stengel, Ventureneer, authors of Hispanic Women Entrepreneurship: Understanding Diversity Among Hispanic Women Entrepreneurs,” the number of Hispanic women-owned businesses is growing at a higher rate than businesses owned by other groups, including non-Hispanic White women and men.

However, businesses owned by women, especially Hispanic women, are underrepresented and dramatically lag behind men-owned businesses in several key business productivity measurements: amount of revenue, having employees and number of employees.

To help Hispanic women-owned businesses prosper, the authors propose the following.

  • Increase Funding to Women’s Business Centers
  • Elevate Awareness of Training and Support Hispanic Women Need
  • Enlarge and Make Permanent the New Markets Tax Credit
  • Lift or Raise Cap on SBA-backed Loans
  • Invest Federal Agency Pension Funds in Emerging Managers
