Black-owned start-ups in the UK will have the opportunity to pitch for funding of up to £50k at the inaugural Black Investor 360 Conference and Exhibition this autumn.


The event, taking place on Saturday 23rd November at the Olympia London Conference Centre, Hammersmith will host a number of leading figures in the business community who will lead workshops and talks about improving finances and advice for entrepreneurs and businesses.


As part of this, start-ups will have the opportunity to secure funding. The funds are being made available by Cornerstone Partners, the first Angel Investor Network focused exclusively on investing in UK based black-owned businesses. Start-ups will be able to make the case for their business via a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style pitch as part of the exhibition.


Attendees will also be able to hear from speakers including authors of the bestselling book ‘Slay in Your Lane’, Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinene who will be leading a Black Women in Finance panel as well as Gavin Lewis, Founder of #TalkAboutBlack will be the conference chairman.


Shari Leigh, founder of the Black Investor 360 Conference said: “The purpose of the Black Investor 360 Conference and Exhibition is to bring your financial journey full circle by hearing and learning from those who have done it and can help you do it too. There will be opportunities to get advice on anything from starting your own businesses to getting your first property.”


“We are pleased and excited to have Cornerstone Partners on board and give a start-up out there in the country the chance to get some financial backing. I would encourage everyone not to miss out on this great opportunity to have so many experts under one roof.”
