How to Close the Racial Wealth Gap
By Indranil Ghosh
Interview with Darrin Redus, Cincinnati Minority Business Accelerator Darrin started his career thirty years ago as a banker at National City bank in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was one of only three African American Commercial Loan Officers with lending authority in the Cleveland, Ohio market. This experience sparked a lifelong passion inside him to help power minority-owned businesses. Darrin walks us through the CMBA’s success in growing an impressive roster of minority enterprises, and we discuss how the CMBA’s business model is being used as a template by other minority business accelerators across America. We also touch on the big challenges that remain, such as the under-utilization of minority talent in corporations.
