Virtual Workshop hosted on April 9th: Digital Entrepreneurship in Communities of Color

Digital transformation of the economy accelerated rapidly during the pandemic, in ways that are likely to affect entrepreneurship in the longer term. How do these trends affect Black, Hispanic, Asian and Indigenous entrepreneurs and the communities they serve?

In April 2021, ASU's Center on Technology, Data and Society hosted a workshop with researchers and practitioners to explore these trends and discuss how local governments can support inclusive entrepreneurship for community development.
