Our Mission

The idea was born in the autumn of 2018 by co-founders Munya & Cruize. From a several hour conversation, where they envisioned tangible solutions for a future of sustained black economic development.

Our aim is to ensure that we connect, share and build as a community; using our wealth of skills to develop impactful projects and assist each other. In this vision we see...

  • A future where black professionals have a safe space to connect and secure opportunities.
  • A future where black creators collaborate and receive full credibility for their content.
  • A future where black investors can nurture black entrepreneurial talent.
  • A future where black expertise is valued and implemented in policy.
  • A future where black entrepreneurs help solve the world’s biggest problems.
“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.”
