DI Squared is a program about entrepreneurs of color in the Portland area.  Each week we feature an entrepreneur who tells the story about getting started.  We also present a resource organization that provides services to businesses in getting started.  And we raise---and answer----a question of the week about some aspect of creating a business.  Our purpose is to inspire realistic thinking that can launch successful enterprises.
