Saluting our Sisters: Black and Racially Minoritised Female Entrepreneurs

Tuesday 31 October

Join us for a panel & networking event for Black History Month 2023, featuring local black & racially minoritised female entrepreneurs.


BIPC Sussex invite you to a special panel & networking event for Black History Month 2023; our guest panelists are black and racially minoritised women that have had connections with BIPC Sussex over the past few years.

Panelists to be announced within the next two weeks, by early October.

The panel will be hosted by Ameesha Bhugwandeen, NatWest Local Enterprise Manager for Sussex.

The session will highlight the achievements of these female entrepreneurs and offer an opportunity to hear about their personal business journeys, highlighting the realities of building a business as a black or racially minoritised woman. We hope this event will applaud individual successes and inspire future generations.

At the event we will also announce a new bi-monthly networking session Empowering Black and Minority Ethnic Entrepreneurs, hosted by Ameesha in partnership with BIPC Sussex.
