The SBA needs to change its criteria for who is eligible to run SBICs if it wants to increase financing to minorities and women, said C. Earl Peek, managing partner of a black-run investment firm that was rejected for an SBIC license.

This requirement tends to exclude minorities and women, Peek said, and ignores other relevant experience, such as accounting, banking and economic development.
People with these types of backgrounds have succeeded as venture capitalists, he said, pointing to a recent Kauffman Foundation study that found minority-owned VC firms have realized a 29 percent internal rate of return on investments made after 2001.
The biggest reason why SBICs aren't making more investments in minority-owned businesses, Peek said, is they don't have "managers who have deal-flow relationships in those communities."
