About ACBN

Our Vision

To be leaders in unifying and educating African and Caribbean entrepreneurs to grow their businesses in a successful and sustainable way.

Running a business on your own can be difficult, but being part of a supportive community will make your entrepreneurship journey easier. The Afro-Caribbean Business Network (ACBN) was created to provide resources for Black business owners to build sustainable and successful businesses.

 

Our History

In 2017, Jodi-Ann Campbell, Chris-Beth Cowie, Derrick Fagan, Darren Green, Ryan Knight, Ray McMillan, and Keisha Wallace had the idea to create a business network for the Black community that would bridge the economic gap for Black entrepreneurs. From that idea came the Afro-Caribbean Business Network. ACBN’s objective is to provide Black businesses with the resources they need to start, grow and scale up. Our goal is to ensure that our businesses are prosperous—and part of the fabric of Canadian business for years to come.

Our network encourages the pursuit of entrepreneurship and developing connections to help business owners stay engaged during their entrepreneurial journey and leave a lasting legacy.
