Job creation and business sustainability are global concerns. The number of new businesses is not keeping pace with the number of business closures each year. Startups fuel job creation, are essential to economic health, and entrepreneurs are critical to the American economy. Since 2000, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship program (formerly OFC) has had a tremendous impact on entrepreneurship development at the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). As a program of TMCF, we ensure that the HBCU community does its part to produce a talented and diverse pipeline of future entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
