KPMG extends hand to black community

Pro-bono advisory service for London start-ups

Start-up companies from London’s black community are to receive
pro-bono services from KPMG
as part of an effort to help them establish themselves and progress beyond the
start-up phase.

The firm will provide the businesses with access to partners and directors
from KPMG’s business advisory team.

The Volunteers
Inspiring Black Entrepreneurs (VIBE) program
has been set up
KPMG’s Black Business
Network
, which has already helped a number of businesses as part of a
successful pilot.

The scheme is now being extended to help more of the Capital’s black
businesses to succeed.

KPMG advisory partner and Project VIBE mentor, Bernard Brown said: ‘Based on
the great feedback from the businesses involved in the pilot we’re now extending
the project and looking for more firms to work with. The companies will have
access to some of our most senior business advisers who will act as a sounding
board for ideas and provide advice on how to build a successful future for their
business.’
