    Abstract

    This policy brief presents an overview of the key rewards and barriers that relate to the support of disabled entrepreneurs. As disability increases with age, it argues that carefully developed and targeted networking interventions, alongside entrepreneurship outreach professionals, may offer considerable scope to enhance support for this disadvantaged group and thus help increase the number of such entrepreneurs in the economy.
