Mayor Pete Buttigieg launched his 2020 Presidential campaign on April 14, 2019. A few months later, in July, he developed his small business policy cornerstone, the Walker-Lewis Initiative, named after two of the most successful African American entrepreneurs in U.S. business history: Madam CJ Walker and Reginald Lewis. The plan is designed to spur entrepreneurship and job creation in underserved communities because he believes entrepreneurship is an engine of economic growth and employment.
