Online black-owned business marketplace and an exploration of the importance of black-owned media and supply chains.
In the words of Black Pound Day founder Swiss World, “the revolution will be economised!”
Join us on Saturday 1 August as we get you ready for the second-ever Black Pound Day.
Across 2 hours, we’ll be holding interactive discussions on Black spending power in the UK, with deep dives into the following topics:
- Building supply chain businesses
- Circulating money into community projects and initiatives
- Media ownership and controlling the narrative
Plus ‘meet the founder’ interactive demos from Black British entrepreneurs.
- Candace Oxley, In Other News founder
- Jermaine Craig, Kwanda founder
‘Meet the founder’ demos
From haircare to greetings cards, skincare to condiments, puzzles to artwork, there’s a huge diversity of Black British brands to discover and many of them are daily-use products.
We’ll be chatting to more than 10 black entrepreneurs in quick-fire 5 minute segments, hearing their stories and finding out about their incredible range.
We’ll then drop the links to their products for you to browse freely.
Black Pound Day is a phenomenal initiative, and we need to ensure that we continue to spend in black-owned businesses beyond Saturday. Spending needs to become habitual!
