Uniting black women in entrepreneurship to step up, step out and own it, because together we thrive.
Khalia launched Jamii, a discount card for Black British businesses in August 2016. Frustrated by both her own inability to find products that worked for her and the negativity surrounding black-owned businesses, she decided to create something positive and useful that works for customers and the community alike! Jamii makes a point of only working with high-quality (and very cool) businesses and is designed to get people in the habit of #ShopSaveSupport, which means that with every purchase, you save money and make an impact.
Currently Khalia works on Jamii as a part-time venture – she is also part of the founding team of BAYGO, a Caribbean quick service restaurant that recently opened its first site in Bank. Determined to re-define perceptions of Caribbean food, culture and people, BAYGO brightens City lunch times with its quick, healthy and delicious dishes, inspired by the islands from which they hail. A second site is planned to open later this year. There’s a lot going on, but busy is her happy place!
