Black Pound Day – August


11am-1pm
1 August, 2020
Free

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.

Featured speakers:

  • 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!
