Established in 2016 by Kike Oniwinde and Meera Raikundalia, BYP Network was created while the UK was struggling with the highest rates of knife crime, a lack of diversity in companies and an inability to find positive role models outside of the entertainment industry.
The Network aims to ‘change the black narrative’ by bringing the global black professional community together to solve problems through economic empowerment and connectivity. The company’s model focuses on corporate partnerships and premium memberships, and with the investment, it plans to expand its voice and presence into other markets.
