Black and Good is an entrepreneurship training program and community for the next generation of Black tech and social enterprise innovators.
Do it Now Now is a social enterprise determined to address the disenfranchisement of Black communities around the world. We work in 6 African countries and in the UK, we run 3 initiatives that foster leadership, activism and entrepreneurship in Black communities. That work has evolved into what Black and Good is today.
Through Black and Good, we give black entrepreneurs access to experts and leaders of industry who are poised to share their knowledge and give access to their resources. To do this we have partnered with Google, Amazon, Audible, Tide, The Trampery, Bethnal Green Ventures and many others.
The Black community is often hailed for our resilience and entrepreneurial spirit, however, we do not hear or often see many Black people operating their businesses at scale. The reason being that most Black businesses never achieve a level of productivity that will allow us to do so.
Our mandate for Black and Good is to support Black entrepreneurs and help them raise their tech adoption, business skills and profitability.
Throughout history, there have been moments that can be said to have been inflexion points in race relations.
These moments shock our core beliefs as a society and force each of us to redefine who we are and who we want to be. The recent killings of Ahmaud Arbrey, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd in America, are such moments.
Like Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream Speech" and his subsequent assassination, the election of Barack Obama and the subsequent election of Donald Trump, we are faced with a series of momentous occurrences that have sent shockwaves through global and local communities forcing each individual to come to terms with the society in which they exist, and perhaps for some, for the first time truly question the values, and belief systems their position in that society depends on.
Our mission is to ensure that you have access to the tools, knowledge, skills and resources you need to build a business that leads to a better life for yourself and the people around you. You can find out more about our team here.
