This January, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation will launch the 2022 Kauffman Knowledge Challenge Request for Proposals (RFP).
The goal of this RFP is to support research that improves our understanding of entrepreneurship and generates practical, actionable, and rigorous evidence to inform decision making and change systems.
There are two focus areas that applicants will be asked to choose from:
- Systems and structures to support inclusive prosperity: This area will explore the infrastructure needed to support entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.
- Equitable opportunities and the future of work: This area will explore how entrepreneurial activity might be structured as the economy emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Research findings will be shared with entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial support organizations, community leaders, and policymakers.
The RFP opens Jan. 18, 2022 and closes Feb. 28, 2022.
