Deborah Levine, Editor of the American Diversity Report interviews Mike Green, co-founder of ScaleUp Partners. His passion is African-American competitiveness and moving a 1% needle that has never been moved. All black-owned businesses today produce less than 1% of GDP and virtually no job growth. That 1% for the African-American sector has never been breached in the history of this nation. Combined with Hispanic businesses, the number is less than 4%. By mid-century that will mean 42% of the US population is producing 4% of its business productivity. That equation undermines America's global competitiveness.
