Opportunities for Black Entrepreneurship in Knowsley

by Jonathan Kearney

Knowsley Council’s Business Growth team, in collaboration with Business and IP Centre, Liverpool City Region, is supporting diversity in its business base and is hosting a ‘Opportunities for Black Entrepreneurship’ event on Wednesday 28 June at the Village Hotel in Whiston

The event aims to encourage black and minority ethnic participation in business and increase their representation in the borough’s economy.

The event will bring together existing and prospective black entrepreneurs, business support agencies and various community groups and shine the spotlight on opportunities for Black entrepreneurs in Knowsley and the wider Liverpool City Region.

The event will be opened by the Council’s Leader, Cllr Graham Morgan, with a number of presentations and keynote  speeches from local black entrepreneurs. The event will feature a panel discussion and question and answer session facilitated by BBC journalist Ngunan Adamu.

Cllr Graham Morgan commented: “I’m delighted to be hosting the “Opportunities for Black Entrepreneurship” event in Knowsley, which will provide a great opportunity to share best practice, celebrate and recognise the contribution black businesses make here in Knowsley as well as share the range of support that is available to them.”

The event is open to anyone interested in entrepreneurship, including those considering starting a business, as well as more established and start up enterprises.  The event is particularly aimed at entrepreneurs and business people from our black and minority ethnic communities, but anyone interested in the subject matter is welcome to attend.
