Melanie Eusebe, Chair and Co-founder of the Black British Business Awards and board member of the Creative Industries Federation commented: "We are thrilled that Facebook hosted such a creative initiative. Being able to bring together young, black entrepreneurs and creatives and to openly discuss their success is key to more individuals being inspired and taking their first steps into the creative industry."
