We’re Unbox-it

A support network for entreprenours to connect, attend events and grow their businesses.

We’re a team of passionate entrepreneurs obsessed with success! We want our members to succeed, create new ideas,  grow their teams and inspire others to do business in a different “Unbox-it” way!.

Our network has over 5300 members and counting. We help entrepreneurs grow their businesses by running free events to create networking opportunities as well as commissioned work.

For migrant entrepreneurs: we design and deliver marketing campaigns that focus on the entrepreneur’s goals. Most campaigns include some – or all – these services: graphic design, video animation, filming and editing of corporate videos and event organising. For businesses that are growing, we also provide sales training and recruitment of sales professionals.
For British entrepreneurs/businesses: we engage with new markets (migrant communities) by analysing and understanding their culture and deliver the marketing campaign.

Our DNA

MISSION

At Unbox-it our mission is to connect migrant entrepreneurs worldwide so they can develop and grow their businesses. Migrant entrepreneurs in the UK, who understand the difficulties and obstacles of starting a business in a foreign nation, lead Unbox-it. These experiences led us to start Unbox-it so business owners can build and create their businesses with expert advice.

VISION

Our vision is simple but integral to our ethos:
To help 1 million migrant entrepreneurs over the next 10 years. We want to bring together and connect migrant entrepreneurs from all over the world, creating a global ecosystem for entrepreneurs.

VALUES

Our values are based around three main areas:
Community – connect the migrant community worldwide.
Respect – we will serve the community, including all heritages, faiths, races and genders.
Integrity in the services that we provide to our community.
These values are based on our experiences and beliefs that by having community, respect and integrity central to your business you cannot fail.
