Islington Council has partnered with Action for Race Equality to launch The Enterprise Support Programme. This brand new Programme is aimed at supporting Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic-led businesses in the London Borough of Islington to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The initiative will include a series of themed masterclasses in areas that can be challenging for businesses to navigate. These sessions are free for all eligible participants.
The masterclass was great…[especially] the suggestion to touch base with charities to attract new customers. I will utilise the range of skills [covered] to branch out further.Masterclass attendee, 2022
Current Masterclasses are all available to book via Eventbrite.
You are welcome to attend as many sessions as relevant to your business. These take place online with our expert trainers and consultants, who have specialised insight into the challenges and opportunities that Black and minority ethnic-led enterprises experience.
