About Do it Now Now
We are creating a world in which every person of Afro-Caribbean descent can gain the skills, tools and resources they need to build a business that improves lives and makes a profit.
We do this through a number of initiatives that seek to identify, engage and significantly support individuals as they seek to solve problems they have experienced in their own communities. Our belief is that by supporting underserved individuals we are championing the needs of underserved communities, bring more equity to the systems that exist.
Geographically we are present in 7 African countries and in the UK. In Africa, we support individuals through entrepreneurship training programs that focus on their adoption of technology and creativity. Through our on the ground programs and virtual mentorship scheme, we are building up our ability to support African entrepreneurs at scale through an easily accessible platform. In the UK we support entrepreneurs through a mixture of online and offline activities, giving black entrepreneurs access to experts, tools and resources they would find difficult to access elsewhere. Through our activities, we are repurposing existing government, charity and corporation resources for the benefit of underserved communities in the UK and in Africa.

- Moon Landing: Outreach to black women in underserved communities to help them ideate and build community-focused social enterprises
- AfriTech XYZ: Virtual UK-Africa mentorship platform aiming to support ease of knowledge transfer between tech and non-tech professionals in the UK and startups teams across Africa.
