Who We Are

Who We Are

Basic Business Initiative UK (BBI UK) is a charitable enterprise support agency registered in England and Wales in 2001 with a mission to Promote Entrepreneurship and Self economic Empowerment.

Our main charitable objective is based on “The relief of unemployment for the benefit of the public in such ways as may be thought fit, including assistance to find employment and support to the unemployed in developing self employment opportunities”.


We host quarterly networking events of the highest standard, with a view to giving members and guests a chance to learn, grow, promote and exhibit their business ideas and network with memberships.
We give you the opportunity each year at our prestigious EMA event to nominate yourself or other eligible achievers for an award in recognition of their outstanding contribution to our society.


We have developed significant level of expertise and experience in Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) development and support ranging from advice, information, guidance, mentoring, training and capacity building since inception in 2001.


We are open to partnership-working with private, public and third/voluntary sectors organisations and agencies. We are very keen to developing more partnership and collaborative working relationships with other individuals and agencies wherever possible.
