Black History Month: The Challenges and Opportunities for Black Founders

To celebrate Black History Month, join us for a panel event with inspirational Black entrepreneurs to take a closer look at the current landscape for Black founders in the UK and what we can do to help provide Black founder-led businesses with the same opportunities as their peers.

We’re delighted to be joined by Benedict Odoom – a tech entrepreneur with more than 10 years’ experience, Ezechi Britton – a serial entrepreneur and venture capitalist and Izzy Obeng – entrepreneur and founder of Foundervine. You will hear from each of our speakers on their entrepreneurship journeys and delve into the challenges and opportunities they have faced and how we can use this to help shape black futures in business moving forward.
