Wolverhampton Black Business Network CIC, was launched in 2011 and incorporated in 2013 as a Community Interest Company by the black business entrepreneurs in the City with the support of the City Council to be the voice of Minority Black owned businesses in the City with the vision of fostering and maintaining economic growth and development of the Black businesses in Wolverhampton and creating an environment in which businesses will flourish and contribute to overall economic activities of the City and the region.

Our key objectives include:

  • Organising business workshop for our members
  • Hosting Business Network meeting/conferences
  • Representing black business owners at strategic level in the City
  • Liaise with the City Council’s Economic Development Team in matters related to business development
  • Engage with other Forum inside and outside the City in the interest of business
  • Provide free business information and guidance to all businesses irrespective of your persuasion.
  • Over the years since formation, we have hosted key personalities who have provided vital insight to business in the City. Some of these personalities include the Bankers from major Banking Industry, British Bankers Association, the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, and CDFI personnel to mention but a few. We have also ran intensive workshops on subjects such as Procurement, Business Financial Control, Speed mentoring, Corporate governance and issue related to Tax and Pension. We have also worked in association with Centre for Research on Ethnic Minority and Enterprise (CREME) based at Aston Business School, a highly reputable authority on Minority Ethnic Enterprises in the Region.

    We are committed to working with the Local Police and other Agencies to minimize the incidences of business crime in the City.

    Our board members are all volunteers who are determined to provide a much-needed support to our businesses. We continue to seek support of the business Community to achieve all our goals.
