Work, Entrepreneurship, and Finance
In emerging economies, entrepreneurship and access to finance are important components in stimulating economic growth.

The King Center's affiliated faculty, students, and researchers examine business and financial innovations that can improve the entrepreneurial ecosystem and access to decent work.
