Female Founder of BYP Network shares her story on a groundbreaking new BBC interview


Kiki Oniwinde is the female founder and CEO of the BYP network, a platform dedicated to enabling young black professionals to create new friendships, business and career opportunities and strong networks.

Like many entrepreneurial journeys, Kiki’s started when she saw a problem and created a solution.

It’s “Unlike anything seen before, we tackle the whole journey from grassroots to senior managers by providing a growth pipeline that focuses on mentorship, peer collaborations and career development. We also offer events, recruitment and social outreach.”

Kiki was working in Fintech when she decided to go part time in order to create BYP, eventually going full time in her business 18 months later. She now counts the likes of Accenture, Deloitte and Spotify as clients, has 30,000 keen members in her network, securing £200k funding though investments from Sky along the way.

Through her work at BYP, which includes conferences, networking events, advice and support with CVs, mentoring, leadership and more, Kiki is determined to change the black narrative and create equality in the professional sphere.

What’s more, if you’re following her on social media you’ll have spotted the very exciting news that BYP Network was featured on BBC News this July. If you haven’t seen, you can watch the video here.
