Economic Empowerment

What if all Black businesses in the UK committed to a core set of business principles and business standards that were specifically designed to make their businesses grow?

"To build a successful business, you must start small and dream big. In the journey of entrepreneurship, tenacity of purpose is supreme."

Aliko Dangote

How can you build a sustainable world-beating Black business that makes real profit, grows, and creates a business legacy for your children and your community? This is the core question that our Business Programme has tackled.

Our programme is designed to show you how to create a world-beating business that makes real profit and grows to build a legacy for your children and your community.
The programme is centred around the creation of what we call the Black Business Charter – a set of 10 principles that we believe all Black businesses must embrace in order to create the kind of thriving and sustainable businesses that grow our community. These principles have been created with direct input from businesses, consumers, consultants, and the community generally.
