The data shows us that there were only 19 BIPOC Fortune 500 CEOs in 2020 ., BIPOC-owned businesses were more likely to be considered "at-risk" or "distressed" than white-owned businesses prior to the pandemic and this was compounded during COVID-19 , and nationally, the number of Black business owners plummeted last year from 1.1 million in February 2020 to 640,000 in April — a 41% loss .

While Push Strategists™, LLC. serves clients globally, Ose Seesay, Founder and CEO, calls Minneapolis home. It is here where there are an increasing number of refugees, immigrants, and people who identify as BIPOC. The share of BIPOC- owned businesses with multiple employees was only 1% and those without employees was 7% in 2018 (most recent data available) in the Greater Twin Cities Metro area . Carson Gorecki—the Northeast Regional Analyst for the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED)—stated that when these entrepreneurs advocate the need for more BIPOC business owners in the area, their perceptions are accurate . Ultimately, there is a need for more inclusiveness, entrepreneurship, and talent development within this community and Ose works to support local entrepreneurs and businesses seeking to close this gap.
