Hello! I am Ruth, the owner of the newly founded start-up events company Urban Business Connect Congress (UBC). I am qualified biomedical scientist who has now established a successful career as an International Life Science Conference Manager. I have been very fortunate to have been headhunted to work in the UAE and I write this from Dubai.
Originally from London, and born a first-generation black Brit, I am keen to return back home and get the Urban Business Connect off the ground. Having been in the event industry, I understand how much value a business gains from attending conferences and exhibitions, where delegates can hear from relevant industry thought leaders and take away practical key points that in turn can help propel their own businesses!
My passion to see the growth of BAME businesses (black, Asian and minority ethnic people) combined with my expertise producing quality conferences has led me to conceptualise hosting periodic conferences, meetings and exhibitions for companies within this diaspora. Currently there are little to no events strategically aimed at fulfilling this gap in the MICE industry, I want to change that.
The ideal would be launch this in the UK and hopefully, following repeat success, run this event in different locations worldwide!
Nearly at the finish line, but this is where you come in, I need some help to get there.
I am here now inviting you to be a part of progress for marginalised businesses in our local neighborhoods, our cities, and worldwide! I am seeking to raise £10,000 so that I can start putting everything together as soon as I land and officially launch the Urban Business Connect Congress! Be a "MAJOR" donor (£ 500+) and get a special and dedicated appreciation on the website once launched!
