State and federal government agencies have long been a key player in efforts to revitalize and stimulate the economy. Various departments and branches of government are engaged in the creation and implementation of economic stimulus efforts geared towards the acceleration of new or established businesses that can have a positive impact on job creation. With a particular emphasis on the commercialization and transfer of new innovations and technologies, a significant opportunity exists to connect more of these commercialization efforts to the nation’s ethnic minority populations. MainStreet Inclusion Advisors maintains unique and specific expertise in the following areas to assist government agencies in this effort:
Sourcing technology-based diverse entrepreneurs to participate in government-backed commercialization initiatives
Increasing “minority participation” and diverse applicants in technology & innovation grant opportunities
Customized communication strategies to engage ethnic minority stakeholders in government sponsored “Request for Proposals” processes
The rapidly changing demographic landscape of America, coupled with ever-widening economic disparities among the nation’s ethnic minority populations, has created a burgeoning crisis that must be addressed. Let the team at MainStreet Inclusion Advisors demonstrate how inclusion strategies “done right” can deliver the sort of sustainable economic outcomes that connect and prepare all citizens for innovation and competitiveness in the new economy.
