Black Advisory Hub & CASA foundation

About Black Advisory Hub (BAH)

The University of British Columbia is pleased to partner with the Casa Foundation to launch the Black Advisory Hub (BAH) in Western Canada. The Casa Foundation has been awarded funding from the Government of Canada’s Black Entrepreneurship Program to execute and deliver the Black Advisory Hub, a national program across Canada to support Black entrepreneurs in Canada to start and grow their businesses. Casa initiatives include business fundamentals training, mentorship, entrepreneurial programming, networking events, webinars and workshops that provide resources and opportunities for Black entrepreneurs, and support for Black-led businesses. 


entrepreneurship@UBC will be the delivery partner for the BAH program and related services at UBC.

The goal of the BAH program is to deliver national services over four years to support 8,500 entrepreneurs and 750 Black-led businesses, while creating 175 new businesses and an estimated 1,000 jobs. The Casa Foundation identified the University of British Columbia as an academic anchor, and entrepreneurship@UBC specifically as a partner, to help them connect with, and find ways to support BIPOC entrepreneurs at UBC and the broader regional ecosystem here on the West Coast. We also want to increase black representation at entrepreneurship@ubc in the various start-up and founder programs.
