Abstract

The objective of this study was to identify factors that increase the potential supply of black entrepreneurs. We argued that blacks' ability to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities is related to their ability to obtain information and knowledge. The black university setting was selected as the stage to test this paradigm.

The data on which this study is based were obtained from the 1980-84 United Negro College Fund Statistical Reports.
