Black British City Group

A Network of Black British professionals in the City

Our network of professionals empower the Black British community through their collective mentorship, crowdfunding and commercial awareness training

We focus on the following sectors, which we identify as areas where our services have the most impact on marginalised communities. These are known as BBCG's Strands.

Business

We use our resources to support black-owned business both financially and through ad-hoc advisory roles as well as to support the business endeavours of our members.

Charity

We provide ad-hoc advice to various charities and organise an annual fundraiser “City Generosity” for our Charity of the Year.

Youth

We mobilise and support the next generation of young Black Britons through our developing mentorship programme and conferences such as “Breaking Barriers”.

Our Purpose

We cultivate opportunities for business development and social impact

The idea of BBCG was conceived on an outbound flight to Montego Bay, Jamaica in 2015. The goal was to form a professional community that allowed Black Britons working in the City of London to better leverage their cross-industry relationships.
