HSBC UK and UK Black Business Show Announce Vital Partnership to Support Black Businesses in UK


HSBC UK and UK Black Business Show have announced a vital partnership that will help support the advancement of black entrepreneurs and professionals in the UK.

The bank, which serves more than 40 million customers through its global operations, will be a key partner of the UK Black Business Show, the UK’s largest trade fair for black business owners and professionals. .

As one of the four main partners, HSBC UK joins JP Morgan and American Express for the UK’s first Black Business Week which will take place October 25-30 at the Queen Elizabeth II Center in London. HSBC UK will also be the exclusive main partner of UK Black Business Week’s flagship trade show, the UK Black Business Show, which will take place on Saturday 30 October 2021.

The UK Black Business Show aims to bring together the best black businesses in the country through exhibitions, workshops, interactive panels and seminars.

“There are a number of challenges and obstacles that black entrepreneurs encounter. Running since 2017 and being the leading organization for black entrepreneurs in the UK, we are all too familiar with many of the issues that hinder their progress. Partnering with HSBC UK will allow us to collaborate and ensure that black entrepreneurs are not overlooked and are treated the same as all other races. HSBC is committed to making a difference and we are delighted to work with organizations that put diversity at the forefront of business goals, ”said Raphael Sofoluke, CEO and Founder of UK Black Business Show Limited.

Amanda Murphy, Head of Commercial Banking Services for HSBC UK, said: “We are committed to ensuring that access to finance is fair and open, regardless of race. Minority businesses are estimated to have contributed at least £ 74 billion to the UK economy in 2019/20 and data from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor found that blacks were three times more likely to start a business than whites between 2002 and 2018 *. This INTERNAL entrepreneurial spirit is why we are thrilled to be a part of the UK Black Business Show and look forward to opening up new growth opportunities for companies with exciting ambitions.
