There has always been a racial wealth gap, and accordingly, it can be difficult for women- and minority-owned small businesses to get funding. How can these small businesses acquire the financing they require?

Capital is necessary for the day-to-day operations of a business. Most women- and minority-owned companies struggle to acquire the funding, resulting in their closure. Discovering this, change-maker Andrea Inokon, her husband, and sisters-in-law decided to launch a fintech platform that could offer financing solutions to the underrepresented. She shares how they are innovating to close the racial wealth gap.

In this episode of Inspired Insider Podcast, Dr. Jeremy Weisz sits down with Andrea Inokon, Co-founder and COO of Cadence Cash, to discuss how women- and minority-owned companies can access funding. Andrea talks about Cadence Cash, what it does, its business model for financing and lending to small businesses, and the funding challenges faced by minorities and women in business.
