I am back at it again with another edition of Women in Business Rock, a series that spotlights and features black female entrepreneurs who are breaking boundaries, changing the game and building impactful brands. Today, I am spotlighting Sophia Leach, retail expert, entrepreneur and founder of the innovative Black Card Lottery.


Sophia is an award-winning retail professional and with years of experience in the retail field, Sophia is also a successful travel entrepreneur. I was fascinated by Sophia when I came across the Black Card Lottery Instagram page. BCL is a forward-thinking, community-based lottery system that seeks to develop and improve education programs for young people in the Black Community in the UK.


Sophia's mission for the Black Card Lottery is to provide an effective and viable financial vehicle to provide solutions for the issues within the Black community. Sophia's passion for elevating the Black community is infectious and her drive to promote and provoke change within the cultural spheres of the community at large is admirable.

More about the Black Card Lottery, BCL is a subscription-based lottery system that allows members to pay just £10 per month, and be in with a chance to win a weekly jackpot prize of £500 or a daily prize from one of the Black-owned businesses that BCL seeks to promote.


The beauty of BCL is that it's a non-profit organisation therefore, the aim is to redistribute the proceeds of the lottery by clawing them back into the prize fund and into purchasing prizes from Black-owned brands.

Also, enhancing existing educational programs and creating new ones to provide young members of the Black community with fulfilling inspiring and forward-thinking educational programs.


Sophia is a change-maker, an innovator and an astute businesswoman who continues to work tirelessly to encourage the Black Community in the UK and beyond to continue working towards a better tomorrow for our future leaders.
