About this event

Black entrepreneurs in the UK have achieved remarkable success in various sectors, including fintech, healthtech, and social entrepreneurship. At Startup Grind London, we believe celebrating these success stories is essential for inspiring future generations.

This event is premised on the need to tell stories of Black entrepreneurs and ecosystem leaders changing the tech scene in London.

We want to host a panel to have their stories told in a unique way - how they have overcome overwhelming obstacles in a space where you may be underrepresented or victims of investment and/or gender disparities.

And there is no better time to bring all these to bare than the UK Black History Month - a momentous occasion to acknowledge, honor, and celebrate the diversity and innovation that Black entrepreneurs bring to the startup world.

This event will provide a platform for these exceptional individuals to share their experiences, challenges, and triumphs specific to London's tech ecosystem. They'll discuss the city's role as a global tech hub, and the importance of diversity and representation, and offer valuable advice to those looking to thrive in this dynamic environment.

Whether you're a London-based entrepreneur, investor, or tech enthusiast, this is a unique opportunity to celebrate Black excellence in London's tech scene and gain valuable insights into the future of tech innovation in the city.

Don't miss out on this inspiring evening of conversation, connection, and celebration. Reserve your spot today and be part of this special Black History Month event that highlights the remarkable contributions of Black leaders in London's tech ecosystem.
