A collaboration between the Black Business Network, Lloyds Bank and Savanta to learn more about the business journey for Black people in Britain.

00:00 / 02:00

Black entrepreneurs have a long history in Britain of innovation, creativity and endurance in business; from hair & beauty giants Dyke & Dryden, to the property ownership of Caribbean & African migrants, and the political power of the Mangrove restaurant and Notting Hill Carnival. We add to the richness of British economics and to the fabric of British culture. It’s time that our contributions are documented and counted for our own benefit.

Black. British. In Business & Proud doesn’t want to be just another survey delivering the message that Black entrepreneurs are at a disadvantage. With the support of Lloyds Bank, we have the opportunity to use our collective voice to dictate and create real change. Our aims are to deliver the following outcomes based on the research response:


  • Discover and quantify the majority view of Black entrepreneurs’ vision for progression together


  • Create an action plan to support Black entrepreneurs in future-proofing their businesses


  • Produce tangible outcomes and products via the Lloyds Bank's Black Business Advisory Committee


  • Supporting Lloyds Bank in implementing institutional change that will positively impact Black entrepreneurs moving forward


  • Empower a future-proof mindset for Black entrepreneurs


  • Lead by example and set a standard for the engagement and support Black entrepreneurs actually want!
