17 Oct Incubator programme for black agencies
The Creative Counsel (TCC) has launched an incubator programme to support black businesses in the marketing and advertising industry. In the first phase of the project, TCC will take five startup businesses under its wing, which will be supported and mentored by the agency’s management team.
“We have opened applications for black startups in media, marketing, digital, mobile and activations. We have no interest in taking any equity in the businesses but are passionate about supporting them with the infrastructure and administrative and accounting processes to succeed,” says TCC’s group co-CEO Ran Neu-Ner.
“We believe successful black-owned businesses are the true measure of transformation. For as long as the advertising industry continues to find sophisticated methods of fronting and recycling the few black managers in the industry, economic transformation will not be achieved,” he continues. “At TCC, we hope to confront and hopefully, eradicate this practice and foster true empowerment in the industry.”
