The Ethnic Minority Small Business Centre (EMSBC) aimed to use its experience from working with the local Asian community to offer ethnic minority groups appropriate business training and information to help them set up small businesses with translation facilities and bi-lingual staff. It would help improve the effectiveness of existing businesses as well as supporting new companies. A Steering Group consisting of representatives from the Pakistani, Indian, Chinese, and Afro Caribbean communities was set up. The centre was launched in May 1985 and Jonathan Emanuwa was appointed as Director of the centre in October 1985. The centre was funded through various sources including private donations, Levi Strauss, Glasgow District Council, Community Projects Foundation, European Rural Development Fund grants, Commission for Racial Equality funding. It became a Company Limited by Guarantee in February 1987 and ceased trading in September 1990.
