Empowering ethnic minority businesses

With support from Mastercard, Be the Business is empowering ethnic minority leaders from small and- medium-sized businesses around the country.


Working together to help ethnic minority business owners grow in the digital economy

Our mission at Be the Business is to get the UK economy back on its feet by supporting the key people who make this happen – small business owners.

Research consistently shows that outcomes for ethnic minority business owners and entrepreneurs are worse than those for the general business population in the areas of productivity, turnover and non-financial goals, despite higher-than-average levels of entrepreneurialism and innovation. We want to help change this.

As a partner of Mastercard’s Strive UK initiative, our fully-funded programme aims to transform the performance of ethnic minority businesses in the UK by connecting leaders from this community to the resources they need to succeed.
