Time to Change? Support for Ethnic Minority Businesses
We’re proud to have partnered with Aston University’s Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CRÈME) to publish the Time to Change report. It sets out 10 recommendations to promote greater success and inclusion of Ethnic Minority Businesses in the UK, and could increase Gross Value Added (GVA) contributions to the UK economy by 300%.
