Project summary

Each year, PayPal provides local-level grants and support to communities around the world as part of the company’s commitment to powering an inclusive and equitable economy. Earlier this year, they awarded Kwanda a $50,000 grant to support our mission. 

We are investing £20,000 of that funding directly into Black-owned small businesses in the UK. Selected founders will receive £1,000 or £5,000 in grants, along with an offer of additional support and mentorship via YSYS, a startup community dedicated to connecting diverse people with opportunities in tech.
