Black. British. In Business & Proud survey is a collaboration between the Black Business Network, Lloyds Bank and Savanta. Lead by us (Black Business network) to learn more about the business journey for Black people in Britain in order to create more stories of success while properly documenting the structural obstacles we face and honestly tackling these structural obstacles as a society.
This survey will be part of a three-year research program to try and develop a deeper understanding, not only of the challenges that Black business owners and leaders face, but to gain a thorough and personal insight as to what support, guidance and facilities would enable black-owned businesses to thrive and multiply. The findings of this research will then be used to inform Lloyds Bank’s future activities to support the growth of businesses owned and run by Black business leaders.
As black entrepreneurs, we have a long history in Britain of innovation, creativity and endurance in business. We add to the richness of British economics and to the fabric of British culture and as we have seen recently, when our narratives are left to the few, it produces outcomes that only serve some. Let’s harness our rich entrepreneurial history to kick down the door & disrupt the status-quo because we are Black. British. In Business & Proud!
