Black History Month Competition

Black History Month Business Entrepreneurs and Business Founders Competition

We’ve teamed up with GAP UK for this year’s Black History Month to celebrate Black-owned businesses. We are proud to announce our Business Entrepreneurs and Business Founders Competition Grant supported by GAP UK. 

If you are a Black-owned business and have a fresh idea and want to get it off the ground, or in the early stages of your development and would benefit from a £2,000 cash grant to launch a new product, experiment with a new idea or create an exciting campaign for their business then this is for you!

There are no restrictions in terms of categories or type of business and can include both services or product orientated businesses. To enter please send us a short statement or video about your business and how you like to use the grant and the impact it will have on your business progression. We are looking for innovative and creative ideas, campaigns and brands, so be free-flowing and have fun!!
