Community-Engaged Entrepreneurship Research Project - Brooklyn Communities Collaborative

Community-Engaged Entrepreneurship Research Project

(Funded through a 3-year grant by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation)

 

How can mission-driven anchor institutions be more effective in building capacity and social infrastructure among underrepresented entrepreneurs? Hunter College Urban Policy & Planning faculty and the consortium of health, education and workforce institutions known as the Brooklyn Communities Collaborative (BCC)[1] will address this question through a research partnership to be undertaken from January 2022-December 2024. The project aims to inform scholarship and practice by generating new knowledge about how anchors can work with   community stakeholders to build entrepreneurial ecosystems in historically underserved neighborhoods.

 

Context

Brooklyn Communities Collaborative emerged in 2019 from the vision for racial equity forged during the fight to save a safety-net hospital serving Brooklyn’s historically Black neighborhoods. This coalition of community, clergy, healthcare workers, healthcare activists and union leaders, elected officials and others  not only kept the hospital open, but transformed it into a new health system using its power to build community health and wealth.

 

The Brooklyn Health Enterprise Hub, a project of BCC, is an unprecedented alignment of stakeholders dedicated to building a health-focused enterprise ecosystem that      sets the stage for East and Central Brooklyn residents to participate more fully in the economy, especially the healthcare industry. The Hub aims to redirect the supply chain to benefit the local economy so that more dollars circulate locally and can be invested in Brooklyn neighborhoods. The focus is on Black  entrepreneurs, who face historical and institutional barriers to stability and wealth generation.

 

Research Partnership

The partnership is a collaboration between the Brooklyn Health Enterprise Hub and Hunter College researchers. In the first 12 months, drawing on an extensive local network of businesses and business development organizations, the team will conduct participatory action research (PAR) among small business owners in Central and East Brooklyn as well as people in those neighborhoods who aspire to start businesses. PAR is “a framework for creating knowledge that is rooted in the belief that those most impacted by research should take the lead in framing the questions, design, methods and analysis and determining what products and actions might be the most useful in affecting change.” (Torre, 2009). It is a methodology designed to capture the voices of local residents and to gather their appreciation of an issue and how it affects their lives. The question driving the first year’s research is “What are the needs and assets of underrepresented entrepreneurs in Central and East Brooklyn?”  Methods will include focus groups, interviews, participant observation, and conversations with community stakeholders – i.e. business development organizations and the entrepreneurs they serve. These stakeholders will participate in all aspects of the research, from generating the questions asked to analyzing and publishing the data, to deciding on action steps. Data from the PAR will inform the work of the Brooklyn Health Enterprise Hub in Years 2 and 3, which are preliminarily slated to include:

 

  • Collaborating with healthcare anchors to localize supply chains: i.e. re-engineer procurement practices so as to offer more opportunities to local suppliers and contractors
  • Offering working capital to entrepreneurs using evidence-based programs involving

non-traditional underwriting standards

  • Incubating new businesses using a cohort format or other strategy
  • Training entrepreneurs to help them improve technical, managerial, problem solving, and legal skills

 

Researchers will track the development and implementation of these initiatives, identify where they encounter successes and difficulties, and draw on them to create practice-oriented publications. Here they will address the question “How can mission-driven anchor institutions be more effective in building capacity and social infrastructure among underrepresented entrepreneurs?” Working closely with the Brooklyn Health Enterprise Hub, they will integrate knowledge co-creation and continuous feedback from stakeholders into their research.

Position Location: New York City. Until the COVID-19 shutdown is lifted, work will be done remotely. After that, in-person presence at NYC meetings and events, and periodically in our midtown office, will be required.

About the Organization: Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a non-profit research, education, and advocacy organization of physicians, medical students, health workers and health advocates dedicated to working toward universal healthcare through single-payer national health insurance (Improved Medicare for All). The New York Metro Chapter, one of 60 nationwide, is PNHP’s largest with 450 paid members.

Of equal importance, the chapter’s current focus is joining forces with a large statewide coalition advocating for the New York Health Act, aimed at creating a single-payer, universal healthcare system in New York State.

Key particular skills include use of databases (CRM), Google Docs, and spreadsheets, and excellent writing skills.

The position is half-time (18 hours per week), reporting to the Executive Director. The salary will be in the range of $25,000-$27,000 per year, depending on qualifications and experience.

Job Requirements:
