Black Founders Connect

In collaboration with Lincolnshire Black Community Network & The University of Lincoln, Barclays will be hosting Black Founders Connect, with the aim of supporting the community based in Lincolnshire.

Event Information

Since 2020 Barclays Eagle Labs & Foundervine have been supporting black founders through the accelerator programmes. Over the past three years, the accelerator has provided founders with the tools, knowledge and resources to take their business to the next stage of growth as well as connecting them with world class coaches and Barclays champions whilst on the programme. As a result, 115 accelerated and over £7.7m* in funds were raised by the cohort and alumni. (*Lifetime data sourced from Beauhurst as of 12.10.23)?

Lincolnshire Black Community Network want to create a network for all diverse black individuals within Lincolnshire County with the aim of sharing knowledge, experiences and supporting the black communities to bridge gaps, foster understanding, and creating Leaders, Sustainable businesses, Scholars and Trailblazers. They also aim to create a robust online and offline ecosystem where Black individuals can network, access resources, and engage in various activities that promote personal and professional growth.

Join this event on 7th December as they delve into how they can support Black and diverse businesses more locally, on the day you will hear from Natalie Ojevah OBE around her journey and passion to create Eagle Labs Black Founders Accelerators and support  and Jacob Diameh, who’s passion has lead to the creation of “Lincolnshire Black Community Network” discussing what support is available, but they also want to hear from you, what support you need and the kinds of barriers that you face.
