Grant for black-owned businesses

A global crisis is enough to challenge most of us. Unfortunately we have seen extreme cruelty in humanity which has prompted us to all think about fundamental issues surrounding racism and diversity.

This issue is very true to my heart. Growing up and working in predominantly white societies as a minority, I have experienced implicit and sometimes explicit racism. Working in male dominant industries prior to founding A&M, I have experienced sexism and stereotyping. Meanwhile, I'm acutely aware that I’ve been very privileged and I do not fully understand the level of pain inflicted on many people on a daily basis around the globe. 

I'm here to listen, learn and take action.

I'm pledging my 3 month full salary and also raising additional funds in order to provide grants along with mentorship to Black-owned consumer brand businesses. 

Please join me. Stand by this, let's make a difference.

PROCESS
I, along with the co-founders of ohne and our heads of departments, will enrolling 6 entrepreneurs into a 3-month Accelerator Program where we mentor and nurture them. Upon completion, they will be awarded a £3,000 grant each. 

Remaining amount will be used towards additional intake of entrepreneurs through the Accelerator Program as well as scholarships for BAME students in need.
