Forget Facebook, Your New App is Here





Hello BYP Members,


Happy November! We can't believe it's the penultimate month of the year. It's been a record-breaking one for BYP and we can't wait to see what 2020 offers us. 


We're feeling inspired and empowered this week as we've been at the final stage interviews of a very prestigious Silicon Valley (San Francisco, USA) business programme. This is a once in a lifetime chance to accelerate our growth and provide opportunities to black professionals across the world, and we're feeling hopeful about what this opportunity could bring!


In the meantime, what do we have to offer you? Your new app is here and it has everything you need. We're ready to make our app the Black LinkedIn and we want YOU on board!


Have you signed up? If not, our app is available for download on iOS and Android. Once you've signed up, here's our 5 steps to getting started:


Create a profile.

Add the basics: your name, job role, biography and profile picture. Then, go further! Add your goals, industry experience and education to give other users a feel of who you are, what you're doing and where you're going.



If you're nervous about connecting with people you don't know, check out our BYP leaders, team members and ambassadors. There are thousands of users ready to connect, network and learn from you, so don't be shy. Want to build your own network? Refer your friends and get them on board!


 Join a group.

Whether you're a Black Female Traveller or all about For The UK Culture, on our platform, there's a group for that, so get involved.


Check out our jobs.

We update our job board constantly with roles across finance and banking, business and consultancy, and arts/media, so whatever your dream job is, the chance is, it's on our board! Update your profile and get your CV ready and you'll have interviews lined up in no time. 


 Share your story!

We want to hear about your experiences, your ambitions, your wishes and desires. Vocalise them by writing a post on our homepage so more people can hear from you. It's the perfect opportunity to shout out your work, promote your brand or business, and to make new connections.


Grow your network.

Want to get involved? Whether you're an employee network, a Black women's reading group, or an ACS, this is the prime time to widen your audience. Set up your group, find like-minded people and grow your network!


Join us for the revolution!




We want BYP leaders. Wherever you're based, we want you to be involved! Read below to find out how you can be a leader and build your own community of young black professionals. All you need to do is send us your CV and a cover letter as to why you'd make a great BYP leader. Email us here
