About this Episode

At Rutgers University’s Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (CUEED), Professor Lyneir Richardson aims to help minority tech entrepreneurs access resources such as capital, meeting spaces, business advice, instruction on how to apply to a technology accelerator program or a government-funded grant, and seed capital.
