Seeding an Inclusive and Equitable Recovery

It’s no secret that COVID-19 was a significant economic threat in addition to a public health crisis. Policymakers responded by providing emergency funding to keep businesses and the economy afloat.

Kauffman’s new report “Seeding an inclusive and equitable recovery” addresses the inequities experienced by small and new firms – particularly businesses owned by Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, women, and individuals in historically under-resourced communities.

New Business Owners

Over 5.4 million new businesses were formed in 2021. This is an historic high, made even more impressive by the fact that it happened while the country remained in the midst of a once-in-a-century pandemic. What motivated these business owners to start a business during this time? How are they faring? And, how do they compare to pre-pandemic businesses? 

In Gusto’s new report, Survey: Entrepreneurs Seizing New Business Opportunities Amid the Great Resignation these questions of new business owners are answered.
