2018 Georgia Latino Entrepreneurship Study


The Latino community in Georgia is the fastest growing in the nation.  At the same time, the entrepreneurship and small business activity are among the most vibrant.   Yet, while the starting rate is high, the revenue and growth of Latino businesses lag significantly behind.

Scant research in Georgia and the Southeast has been done to understand the needs of Latinx Entrepreneurs in a way that can better inform government policy and the design of services by both the private and not-for-profit sectors in support of their development.

The Latino Community Fund (LCF Georgia)  under its “Amplifying our Voice” strategy, aiming to advance knowledge of our community and provide evidence-based tools to support policies, program and services development, engaged in a research study in 2018 in collaboration with the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative, community organizations and researchers from the Emory Goizueta Business School, University of Georgia and the Small Business Development Center Office of Minority Business Development.
