A Statement from the Founder

The life cycle of the butterfly is one of nature’s many miracles, a story of transformation, once fulfilled, leading to an awe-inspiring display of colour and beauty.

BBI captures a little of this miraculous event in the hues of its website and believes equity, diversity and inclusion for Black and diverse people, leading to parity, will fully unlock society’s richness and potential. Besides racial harmony, cultural and other social benefits, according to the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA) the UK’s Black community spends £300bn annually with another £24bn available for companies, organisations and institutions ready to engage earnestly. Additionally, research conducted by Private Bank Coutts, revealed another £75bn would be contributed to the UK’s GDP if Black Entrepreneurs were properly funded, a ‘Win Win’ for all.
