What is the gateway to fast-tracking your ambition?

EY Entrepreneurs Access Network

Minority-owned companies contribute greatly to the US economy (4.7 million jobs) and capital market ($700b annual revenue). But many Black and Latino businesses do not reach their full potential due to coaching, connections, curriculum and capital barriers. EY Entrepreneurs Access Network (EAN) helps Black- and Latino-owned companies address the disparity gap for greater growth. Review the EAN 3-year impacts report to view key milestones and how our goal of breaking down barriers and providing opportunities for Black and Latino entrepreneurs has resulted in positive success.

How do you turn adversity into advantage?


Peer-to-peer collaboration and savvy counsel is propelling EAN momentum.
