What are the barriers to success and what tools do we need to ‘level up’ are just some of the topics to be tackled at the UK Black Business Entrepreneurs Conference taking place this summer.
The inaugural UK Black Business Entrepreneurs Conference, taking place on Thursday 14 July 2022 is intended to ‘Empower, Engage and Educate’ Black entrepreneurs with the tools they need to achieve greater success.
Following on from the launch of The Black Entrepreneurs Report 2021 written by Dr Carlton Brown, which gave contemporary insight into Black entrepreneurship within the UK, the key intention of this new conference in the business landscape is to galvanise a dialogue between different parts of the business community, policymakers, financial institutions, the public/private and 3rd sectors, to foster open and meaningful conversations in a new and powerful way.
The conference, which was also founded by the report author, Dr Carlton Brown, will discuss ‘The state of Black Entrepreneurship and solutions for greater success.’
Attendees can expect to gain valuable contemporary insights from research, listen to great speakers, learn from successful entrepreneurs, network with other professionals, and learn about best practices that can be applied in their business. Focusing on the Black African, Caribbean Diaspora, the event will provide a snapshot into entrepreneurship across the different backgrounds and solutions to remove structural and systemic inequality.
Commenting on the conference, Dr Carlton Brown said: “This year’s UK Black Business Entrepreneurs Conference is taking a closer look at the state of Black entrepreneurship in order to find solutions for greater success and enable Black business’ to ‘level -up’ great speakers, great stories, great insights.”
The conference will take place on Thursday 14 July 2022 at NatWest Conference Centre, 250 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 4AA.
