Blueprint’s Program Resources.
Blueprint’s program resources are designed to have a substantial impact on the businesses chosen. “Findings showed that over half of BIPOC entrepreneurs have difficulty accessing networking opportunities. This in comparison to just 36 per cent of white business owners. A lack of access to guidance and peers has a cyclical effect on the success of BIPOC-run businesses. Because without community successes and failures to learn from. Business owners struggle in making inroads. Because it requires extra time and effort. Which leads to perpetuating poor outcomes. And this is no mystery to BIPOC business owners. As 68 per cent of whom believe mentorship would have a positive impact on their business.” National Post
