Black businesses contribute £25 billion to the UK Economy yet have been severely hit by COVID-19. Community businesses have had to cease operation which has also been exacerbated by disproportionate risks of infection of coronavirus to the health of members of the black community. Against all the odds and lack of government support, black business owners still have the entrepreneurial drive to start-up and operate small scale businesses. We believe we have found the solution to this long-standing issue of inclusion and have developed a bespoke mentorship scheme and pre-start up course that will help Black business owners access the appropriate support that will help them grow, scale and sustain their businesses long term. In the space of only 6 months, 60+ black business owners have reached out to The Black Pounds Project and only a handful of them knew about the free support that is available elsewhere. Therein lies the problem.
