Urban Entrepreneur Partnership

The Kauffman Foundation launched the Urban Entrepreneur Partnership (UEP) in 2005 and operated the program until 2012.

Its mission is to provide education and coaching to enable minority and urban core entrepreneurs to more successfully scale their firms.

Over the years, it has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs to do just that.

In 2012, UEP entered into a new partnership with the Center for Transformation and Strategic Initiatives with the goal of taking the program to the next level and achieving sustainability.
