Seven Black entrepreneurs have recently been named a ‘Midlands Entrepreneur Shaping the Future’.  The news comes after Black Business Magazine, in partnership with Lloyds Bank, set up the campaign to celebrate and uplift the remarkable achievements of black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs in the Midlands region of the United Kingdom.

Through captivating storytelling, inspiring profiles, and thought-provoking features, we will spotlight the incredible individuals and companies redefining industries, driving innovation, and creating positive change in their communities.



At the heart of the ‘Midlands Entrepreneurs Shaping the Future’ campaign is a deep belief in the power of diversity and inclusion.  Black entrepreneurs bring unique perspectives, insights, and talents to the business world, and providing them with a platform to thrive and succeed is essential. This campaign will serve as a catalyst for collaboration, networking, and empowerment, fostering an environment where black-owned businesses can thrive and make a lasting impact.

Co-Founder and Editor In Chief, Justice Williams MBE said:

We are delighted to partner with Lloyds Bank, whose unwavering commitment to supporting diverse businesses aligns perfectly with our mission. Their support and collaboration will be instrumental in driving the success of the campaign, amplifying the voices and achievements of Midlands-based entrepreneurs.


Rebekah Taitt,  Regional Development Director – Midlands, Lloyds Bank, commented:

We know that the Midlands is home to the largest population of Black-owned businesses outside of London. Ensuring diverse business owners have access to the right support to help them grow is vital to the economic prosperity and inclusivity of the entrepreneurial ecosystem within the region. We’re committed to doing more, and I’m delighted that we support this magazine to be part of the needed change.


Through a series of engaging features, interviews, and events, the ‘Midlands Entrepreneurs Shaping the Future’ campaign will highlight inspiring success stories, provide valuable insights and resources, and foster connections between entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders. The campaign begins with a special launch edition of Black Business Magazine dedicated to showcasing the Midlands’ trailblazers, visionaries, and game-changers.
