The IDEA Center will host a webinar conversation on how to break down systemic barriers around African American entrepreneurship. More specifically, our panel of speakers will discuss what barriers exist for Black entrepreneurs (and why), what needs to be done to increase Black entrepreneurship, how models of Black entrepreneurship might look different from what traditional models expect, current examples of success and how Notre Dame, other universities, investors, politicians and attendees of the webinar can support these efforts now. 

This webinar will feature Philip Gaskin, vice president of entrepreneurship at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation; G. Marcus Cole, the Joseph A. Matson Dean and Professor of Law at Notre Dame Law School; Andrew Welters, CEO and partner at 5Lion Ventures; and Bryan Ritchie, the vice president and Cathy and John Martin Associate Provost for Innovation at Notre Dame.
