Times of Entrepreneurship was founded by longtime business journalist Elizabeth MacBride. After years of writing for top business media, she saw a gap.
We see business through the lens of its impact on individuals and communities. We write often at the nexus of finance and entrepreneurship, so that our stories are inspiring and actionable.
We focus on entrepreneurs who have been left out of the narrative: women, people of color, and those who are geographically outside traditional power centers.
We were founded in February 2020, launching right into the teeth of the global pandemic. Lucky us: That meant we could make an impact right away. In the United States, our research was used by the U.S. Senate to reshape small business aid for millions of entrepreneurs. We are still prototyping. But tens of thousands of people worldwide have already engaged with us and read our stories. Our sponsors include the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation, and MIT’s Legatum Center for Entrepreneurship & Development.
