Trading African Enterprise At Spitalfields May 2016

By West Africa Cooks, 28 January, 2016

Three reasons why you should take up a traders stall at Spitalfields in May 2016

  1. The glass ceiling, diversity and inclusion at your work in positions of power in management. Frustrated? See Hollywood boycott, ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬, the gender, ethnic pay gap and gender pricing
  2. No pension in your future, so start your life time business now. Build the future today. Never retire. Support your family with flexibility
  3. Real opportunities exist for first, second and third generation African and Caribbean entrepreneurs

Discuss! We would like to hear your views. We want to hear and buy from you.

..and for your future self. Heritage‬, culture and business

So our people not only have to be re-educated to the importance of supporting black business, but the black man himself has to be made aware of the importance of going into business. And once you and I go into business, we own and operate at least the businesses in our community. What we will be doing is developing a situation wherein we will actually be able to create employment for the people in the community. And once you can create some employment in the community where you live it will eliminate the necessity of you and me having to act ignorantly and disgracefully, boycotting and picketing some place else trying to beg him for a job.
Anytime you have to rely upon your enemy for a job you’re in bad shape.

Takes inspiration from Malcolm X

Showcasing Creative African Artists At Spitalfields

Africa at Spitalfields is a great chance to enjoy some captivating entertainment from a range of creative artists set around 100 stalls from 54 African countries.

Pop Up Africa is the brain child of Jessica Laditan and Victoria Akagwu. Their aim of making the African retail industry more available to a broader audience resulted in the amazing one-day event, 'Africa at Spitalfield's.'

Jessica and Victoria are keen to offer support to creative entrepreneurs from the continent of their birth, in the form of highly sought-after space at affordable prices. This includes the best in both food and retail, presented to the masses in the most exciting fashion. Pop Up Africa is not just about providing trading areas, but is also used to create events aimed at celebrating and inspiring enterprise. Several visits were made to a number of African countries where creative industries are emerging but where important investment is also needed to make African brands more accessible to a wider market.

Pop Up Africa brings one of the planet’s most colourful continents to London, where both Jessica and Victoria love and grew up.

Check out the other African events and attend them. Tell your family and friends. Run your own events.

Keep the focus on the long term the next generation and good luck!
