What are you looking for?

Applications for our Future 100 Growth Fund are open!

BY BEO | 30/06/2022

The Future 100 Growth Fund aims to overcome the significant barriers faced by young Black entrepreneurs in Britain when setting up businesses and will therefore, support Black entrepreneurs who are looking to bring a business concept to life, have a fledgling business that they want to scale, or have the beginnings of a thriving business.

It will:

  • Offer funding of up to £15,000 for the most innovative new business ideas and exciting existing companies
  • Create a network of mentors and community organisations to advise and assist new enterprises through direct financial support and products nurturing talent and innovation
  • Support Black founders and entrepreneurs with relevant knowledge and skills, and social capital
  • Provide access for Black entrepreneurs to supply chain, connections and insight from a large corporate

To apply, we’ll ask you to complete a form describing your business idea and the problem it solves. We’re also interested in hearing about your motivation for developing the idea. After applications close on August 20th, we’ll review all the applications, and spend time getting to know even more about your team, market, progress, and idea through a two-stage interview process.

This programme, which the Black Equity Organisation (adding for SEO) set up with our partner Sky, is open to applicants of Black African, Black Caribbean, Black British and Mixed-race descent between the ages of 18 and 30 years old and UK residents.
