New Roots is a mentoring and peer-to-peer programme for local people from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background interested in entrepreneurship.
Access the resources, networks, and expertise needed to transform your ideas into thriving enterprises and careers.
New Roots is part of the Empower by GoDaddy program, the company’s social impact initiative that equips entrepreneurs in underserved communities with the training, tools and resources that they need to be successful. Started in the U.S. in 2017, Empower by GoDaddy has now formed partnerships across 43 cities in the U.S. and Europe to empower entrepreneurs everywhere and make opportunity more inclusive for all.
To join the 2021 cohort, applicants must be:
✔️ From a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background
✔️ Based in the London Boroughs of Camden or Islington
✔️ Interested in developing a business idea
The 1-1 mentoring supports participants to develop their business idea. These sessions help to identify and pursue medium to long-term professional goals, as well as overcoming challenges.
Our capacity-building workshops give participants the foundation to start a business and develop skills. Topics range from defining mission and values, writing a business plan, financial planning, marketing, and more.
Participants have the opportunity to share their experience with the cohort and learn from each other. We also offer a free Hub30 membership, which gives access to our local and global community of social entrepreneurs.
