The first study of its kind in the state, the project will tap resources from three universities as well as a host of other organizations in Alabama and beyond. It will take a deep dive into identifying hurdles encountered by urban and rural Black businesses in Alabama, and how they differ from those encountered by other businesses, said lead researcher Lou Marino, professor of entrepreneurship and strategic management, chair of the Department of Management and Frank Mason Faculty Fellow in Family Business at the University of Alabama (UA) Culverhouse College of Business.
