ARTICLE: How Foundations Can Help Entrepreneurs Save the American Dream

Milstein commissioner and Village Capital Executive Director Ross Baird penned an editorial recently covering the latest report, "Can Startups Save the American Dream?"

His first area of focus was on bottlenecks in risk capital. 50% of venture capital funds invested globally in 2013 went to just three states -- California, New York, and Massachusetts. And of all firms that received such funding, only 5% were co-founded by women, 1% by latinos or african-americans. 

Baird also examined the impact that Program Related Investments (PRIs) and more broadly, social entrepreneurship, can have on businesses across the country.
