Two-way Understanding

Our reverse mentoring model enables both mentors and mentees to share knowledge, insights and perspectives to learn from each other. Find common understandings and confidence in opening minds to different world views.

Empowerment

Our Mentors enable empowerment. Our Black Voices can discuss important decisions in their career, ask for advice on how to achieve their full potential and succeed in life, school or work.

Safe Space

'Safe space' is our term for counselling. Our Black Voices benefit from a short-term counselling model where we provide ‘safe space’ to explore fears and anxieties.


Resilience

Our Counselling facilitates the development of resilience in our Black Voices. This model of resilience equips our Black Voices with the skills and knowledge needed to keep themselves mentally healthy.

Transformative Experience

Our advisors share knowledge, insights and experience to help deliver a transformative experience for the business founders on our programmes.

Investment

Enable growth. Share expectations, advise and seek to invest. Your investment is an investment in the Black community.

Business Community

Our ecosystem of entrepreneurs, advisors, experts and investors will benefit from your passion for doing something that matters.

Sustainable growth

Our community is critical in setting up founders to tackle the many challenges they face in scaling up their business.
