overview

There are over 300,000 Ethnic Minority-owned Businesses (EMBs) in the UK, representing over 7% of all SMEs. This entrepreneurial community brings with it a proven track record of innovation, hard-work and customer loyalty as well as flexibility and cultural insight.

Diversity and inclusivity enable access to the entire supply chains, as the markets become more competitive and homogenised. The inherent lack of Black Businesses in both the public and private sector, denies large organisations access to the talent within the market which offers different perspectives and diversity of thought.

CBB Group is honoured to advocate Black Businesses and work with progressive individual members and corporate members that supports inclusion. CBB Group provides a platform to showcase underrepresented businesses that are agile, innovative and creative and enables businesses to develop a competitive advantage.
