In an effort to gather research and facilitate growth of LGBT+ businesses, the British Academy is funding a study to learn more about how to best support LGBT entrepreneurs. According to the UK website Real Business, “The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and you will have opportunity of winning a £50 love2shop voucher! It will be open until end of May 2018. To take part you must identify as an LGBT+ person.”

In order for more LGBT+ entrepreneurs to thrive in their field, the discrimination has to stop and entrepreneurs should be allowed to be themselves. I understand that this will not happen overnight their I would like to applaud the University of Sussex, Aston University and others for taking it upon themselves to create research opportunities to generate growth and understanding for LGBT+ entrepreneurs.
