Black History Month: Celebrating Black British-owned Emerging Enterprises Panel
Location: Boxpark Wembley
7:00pm — 9:00pm
Recent research shows that ethnic minority businesses (EMBs) contributed a staggering £25 billion to the UK economy in 2018 - equivalent to the economic contribution of Greater Manchester – but many are being held back by barriers which hinder their growth.
The representation of Black people in senior management positions is disproportionate and the number of British Black entrepreneurs is even more shocking. But a group of successful Black business owners on the panel hope to encourage members of the Black community to push the barriers and realise their goals are attainable.
