Dr Sara Calvo presents a research seminar on Ethnic Minority Social Enterprise - Opportunities and challenges in the East London Olympic Boroughs. Part of the seminar series Centre for Enterprise and Economic Development Research.

Little is known about the development of ethnic minority involvement in social enterprise activity, despite the sector’s considerable growth and prominence in academic and political debate.

Dr Salvo’s research examines the development of ethnic minority social enterprise activities using a mixed method approach to examine the case of the East London Olympic Boroughs. The analysis shows that ethnic minority entrepreneurs are crucial for the development of social enterprise, as is the context in which they work - their access to resources, market opportunities and the political context. This research also suggests that recent policy actions offer little scope for increasing the engagement of small-scale ethnic minority social enterprise organisations.
