This report is the result of a two year, five-country study into small business resilience with a particular focus on firms with female and ethnic minority leaders. The overarching aim of the research was to deliver insight into what makes small businesses resilient and thus more able to survive crises. We also wanted to understand whether entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups face particular challenges related to their status, and if so, what could be done to address these challenges.
