The Missing Middle Entrepreneurs 

 

Missing Middle Entrepreneurs (MMEs), require specific knowledge, resources, networks, advisors, patient and flexible capital at this growth stage of their business. MMEs are predominately:

• people of color, immigrants, Indigenous and trans communities,

• not big enough to access seed capital money,

• have limited access to ‘Friends and Family’ capital, and

• unable to obtain the necessary credit for the working capital needed to grow the business.
