The Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE) at Cal State San Bernardino (CSUSB) has released the first-ever State of Entrepreneurship Minority Report. Among the key findings is that 35 percent of inland businesses are owned by minority entrepreneurs, with Hispanic owners representing the largest portion at 16 percent.

“Minority entrepreneurship is an incredibly positive indicator for the Inland Empire,” said Mike Stull, director of the Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship. “Overall, the rate of new entrepreneurs outpaces the national level, but lags when it comes to new ventures being created by individuals out of choice rather than necessity.”
