Nosso compromisso com empresas dirigidas por pessoas negras

A Uber tem o compromisso de ser umaempresa antirracista. Nossos compromissos abrangem uma série de ações, como livrar nossa plataforma do racismo e impulsionar a equidade nas comunidades. Eles estão no centro das prioridades da nossa empresa e continuamos a expandi-los e evoluí-los. Como parte desta iniciativa, dedicamos $ 10 milhões para apoiar atividades de empresários afrodescendentes em todo o mundo.

Uber Eats partnerships

Since 2020, Uber has partnered with EatOkra in the US to support Black-owned restaurants and further enhance their experience on the Uber Eats and EatOkra platforms. We worked together on pop-ups in Harlem, NY, and Washington, DC. And in 2023, we’re expanding our partnership to include EatOkra’s Restaurant Accelerator and Dine Diaspora’s Black Women in Food Initiative.

O que é o EatOkra?

EatOkra é o aplicativo ideal para descobrir restaurantes, food trucks e fornecedores de bufês dirigidos por afrodescendentes em todo o país. É onde a comida, a cultura e a comunidade se conectam.

Unindo os amantes de comida aos restaurantes dirigidos por afrodescendentes

Com mais de 10.000 empresas de alimentos e bebidas dirigidas por afrodescendentes e mais de 350.000 usuários, o EatOkra está cumprindo sua missão de conectar os amantes da gastronomia a restaurantes e eventos culinários negros, ampliando a experiência gastronômica para e por afrodescendentes. Os restaurantes podem se cadastrar aqui para se juntar ao EatOkra.

Along with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), Uber Eats donated $4.5 million in grants in 2021 to small US businesses coping with COVID-19 challenges. Among those grant recipients, 88% of funding went to businesses of color.

In the UK, Uber Eats launched the Black Business Fund in 2021, in partnership with Enterprise Nation and Be Inclusive Hospitality. That program provided access to funding, education, and mentoring for 10 Black restaurant owners who had been severely affected by the pandemic. Each of the small Black-owned businesses received a £5,000 grant to give them a valuable boost.

In 2022 in the US, Uber and Uber Eats sponsored Juneteenth celebrations in Brooklyn, Harlem, Houston, and Tulsa. The celebrations featured performances from local music artists, food from local vendors, and displays from community partners.

2023 and beyond

We plan on continuing our support of Black-owned businesses in the following ways:


  • Expand partnerships with EatOkra to launch EatOkra’s Restaurant Accelerator and with Dine Diaspora’s Black Women in Food Initiative to continue supporting Black businesses in the food industry.

  • Partner with Operation HOPE in its 1MBB program to support one million Black businesses by 2030.

  • Collaborate with LISC to establish the Black Restaurant Fund to support Black businesses’ access to capital to pursue growth and expansion opportunities. This fund builds on our recent Grants for Growth program with LISC, which prioritized entrepreneurs of color. Learn more

  • Grow support for Black-owned restaurants in the UK with a new £250,000 fund. Twenty-five restaurants from across the UK will each receive £10,000 grants, a free Enterprise Nation membership to access support for their business, a free Be Inclusive Hospitality membership to join a fast-growing professional network for people of color in the hospitality sector, and access to e-learning courses covering important topics like making sales, accessing finance, creating a brand, and motivating a team.
