The future is bright

As a non-profit organisation, Black Umbrellas NPC offers you an opportunity to drive economic development and contribute towards growing a competitive human capital capacity by investing in 100% black-owned businesses which are unable to afford the Black Umbrellas virtual incubation programmes. Your investment will give these businesses free access to our virtual incubation programmes which includes our mentorship programme, increasing their chance of becoming economically and socially successful businesses, and changing the business landscape of this country.
