Association for African Owned Enterprise (UK)

The Association for African Owned Enterprises (AAOE) is a non-profit organization which represents African professionals, businesses owned or directed by Africans, and businesses serving the African community in the UK.

Founded in 2006 the AAOE has grown to earn significant recognition as the leading Diaspora organization representing all Africans in the UK. They have gained our status through establishing effective relationships with prominent community groups and recognized community leaders. It is their goal to always build mutually beneficial partnerships with like-minded groups within the African community.

Most of their efforts are focused on developing enterprise and protecting the social welfare of professional and entrepreneurial Africans in the UK, therefore, they do not pursue political, religious or racially motivated goals.

They proactively champion the cause of African enterprise by engaging with Government, the media and influential business leaders to ensure African owned businesses get the representation they deserve. The AAOE is one of only a few Diaspora interest organizations who play a vital role in policy formulation at the highest levels of the public and private sector.

They also provide platforms for African owned businesses to network and raise issues that are critical to their existence & success. Their networking platform has recorded significant success because they have forged partnerships with key stakeholders and policy makers.

Affinity partnerships serve their members in two distinct ways. Firstly, they agree partnerships with other membership organizations and community groups widening the reach of the African community. Secondly, they agree strategic partnerships with private organizations who in turn offer their members specially negotiated offers and discounts that add value to their membership.
