    Abstract

    Under-represented entrepreneurs and innovators such as disabled and ethnically diverse (including Black and Asian) are described by OECD (2017) as “missing entrepreneurs”. This report draws on current research and focuses on the geographies of support for disabled and ethnically diverse entrepreneurs in the UK. The study addresses the challenges faced by the networks and organisations that support them thus aiding understanding of the issues and why location matters. The research thereby contributes to new understanding through the use of an analytical framework which combines a regional stakeholder approach with an inclusive ecosystem approach.
