Equity in entrepreneurship and impact investing

Shannon Helmer Deloitte

Given the ongoing representation gaps in entrepreneurship, how can for profit and nonprofit organizations drive greater access to capital for those typically underrepresented, especially for those seeking funding for social impact initiatives.

Recognizing that systematic shifts don’t result from a single action is essential. Instead, the most effective examples often arise from a combination of collective action, evolving values, trust, and resources. Rather than focusing on isolated solutions, a systems change approach seeks to comprehend and influence a system’s underlying structures, relationships, and dynamics to create lasting, positive impact.

Equity requires system-level change, starting with targeted choices that challenge old patterns and drive better results. inequity are systemic problems that require a systemic response.
