This was the second installment of ACBJ’s “Small Business, Big Mission” series. Matt Kish and Malia Spencer of the Portland Business Journal wrote the national story that won the award. Each of its 40+ newsrooms profiled local minority entrepreneurs. The stories focused on access to capital and the unconventional means that many of them had to use to start their businesses. ACBJ had a map for each market that showed SBA lending by census tract to depict the disparities between white and non-white tracts. ACBJ received a lot of positive feedback from readers about the package.
