ACE Investment Management Team
Why we launched our Investment Program
In 2020 only 0.67% of UK businesses are black-owned and together with female founding teams, they receive less than 1% of all UK funding from formal investment opportunities. As disruptors, we plan to change this. We will increase the visibility of black & diverse entrepreneurs, increase opportunities for funding and in turn this will drive new opportunities for a whole generation. Together we can encourage generational wealth and teach entrepreneurship.
How the winners will be chosen
Our shortlist will be chosen because of their potential for success, ability to scale, how they are growing their business and how the investment will be used. The winners will be chosen for their potential to become the big brands of tomorrow or those with an innate community need.
How to enter
All applicants will receive a business plan, revenue and expenditure workbooks and bespoke business reviews for all applicants, on how to improve their business plans which can be then used to look for other funding. All of which are crucial to long term business progress.
