The PROUD event

An estimated one million Black and Afro-diasporic people live in Germany.

Among them there are many talented and creative people who offer unique products and services but do not always get the attention they deserve.

The PROUD event offers Black entrepreneurs and artists a stage to present their ideas, talents and products to a broad audience.

The PROUD event aims to show a different face of Black entrepreneurship, Black culture and community life, beyond the often well-intentioned clichés and stereotypes.
