This chapter addresses a variety of policy issues pertaining to Hispanic entrepreneurship. It begins with a cursory data analysis that suggests the existence of potential untapped opportunities for Hispanic entrepreneurs because they either lack awareness about existing programs or are reluctant to use them. The chapter then discusses issues that have shaped (and might continue to shape) Hispanic entrepreneurship, from public policy and private-sector perspectives to changing demographic trends across the country. The chapter also provides a critical assessment of policy-related issues facing Hispanic entrepreneurs, such as those pertaining to government procurement, firm size, credit access (such as the “SBA 7(a)” loan program); education, immigration (including the “EB-5” visa program), and statistical discrimination.

Keywords:   Hispanic entrepreneurship and public policy, Hispanics and the EB-5 visa, Hispanics and the SBA, government procurement and Hispanic-owned businesses, public procurement and minority-owned businesses
