Raphael Sofoluke is the Visionary and CEO behind The UK Black Business Show. This show provides a platform for stand out black owned businesses to be promoted. Also, it gives their owners the opportunity to both network and learn from industry pioneers. 2017 marked the show’s first year and was a resounding success with over 500 BAME entrepreneurs in attendance. Once again, the show is back again this year on the 13th October, even bigger and better with 100 exhibitors and over 1000 guests.

Our Founder Danielle McDonald spoke with Raphael. Talking about partnerships and collaborations, marketing, and the long-term vision for the show and more.
