BE Mogul is a new publication celebrating the contribution of black British business owners. On 4 February 2016 NatWest hosted the official launch ceremony in London where over 75 of the most innovative and successful black business owners featured in the BE Mogul publication were in attendance along with other VIP guests.

The exclusive event highlighted and showcased the movers-and-shakers in the black British business industry from technology to law firms. In addition to the profiling of successful nominees, the publication highlighted the contribution that entrepreneurs of African and African Caribbean descent are making to the UK economy.

Lisa, 35, London, Bookkeeping entrepreneur was delighted to have been featured in the publication and said “Despite the recession and everything that’s been going on - all businesses need someone to keep an eye on the numbers for them. We help clients to find a bookkeeper or get in help to have training in bookkeeping systems and we help bookkeepers to find work through our Work As A Bookkeeper franchise system.”

Mavis Amankwah, business owner of Rich Visions and founder of BE Mogul said: “BE Mogul provides a platform for positive business role models, who may or may not have been recognised in the mainstream media, to inspire and encourage others. We want to shout loud and proud about the positive economic contribution black-owned businesses are making in Britain today.”

Daniel Thompson, Enterprise Director for NatWest, said: “Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of the UK economy and NatWest is delighted to have the opportunity to highlight and celebrate the important contributions made by the black business industry.

“For the first time ever, there are over 5 million businesses in the UK. Our research has shown that nearly half of Britons would love to be self employed, but are held back by the belief that there isn’t enough support in their local area in terms of advice, knowledge and funding.

“As by far the biggest supporter of SMEs in the UK, NatWest is committed to identifying ways to help and support entrepreneurs. Working with BE Mogul will give us the opportunity to highlight the hard work and innovation demonstrated by these entrepreneurs while providing inspiration for budding entrepreneurs both in the black community and across the UK.”

Official messages of support for the publication also came from 10 Downing Street and Greater London Authority (GLA). The publication not was a triumph for Black businesses in general but also recognised the increase of Black women starting and growing their businesses in Britain today. Other highlights in the publication includes a Business Celebrity section that features and salutes CEO,MOBOs, Kanya King MBE and Entrepreneur Levi Roots (Keith Graham) as well a one to watch for 2016 second runner up of the 2014 BBC’s Apprentice Bianca Miller.

Notes to the editor

• Today there are many successful Black British entrepreneurs, some of whom have worked hard against all odds to make it. Unfortunately, they’re not always acknowledged for their hard work. That’s the inspiration behind the BE Mogul publication. BE Mogul aims to encourage this positive evolution by bringing successful black businesses to the attention of the mainstream media and the wider business community across the UK.

• 10,000 copies have been printed and distributed free from black-owned businesses across the UK.

• In the 1990s, the majority of black-owned businesses mainly served the black community, with niche services like hairdressing, food retail and catering.
• Today an increasing number of black entrepreneurs are running multimillion pound companies in mainstream sectors such as IT, financial services, property, media and fashion, as well as law, consulting, recruitment and other professional services.
• In London alone, there are 16,000 businesses owned by people of black African and Caribbean descent.
• London’s black-owned businesses currently employ 100,000 people and generate a combined annual sales turnover of around £10 billion.
