Press release: BYP Network unveils cutting-edge career advancement platform for black professionals

Published: Jul 2023

BYP Network, a leading organisation focused on empowering Black professionals and corporations, is thrilled to announce the launch of their groundbreaking career advancement platform, Javelin. Designed to bridge the gap between Black talent and curated career opportunities, Javelin is set to revolutionise the tech space and accelerate BYP Network’s mission to leverage its insights to help millions of Black professionals in their career progression.

Derived from the background of BYP Network’s CEO and Founder, Kike Oniwinde Agoro, as a javelin thrower for Great Britain, the name Javelin holds deep significance. It not only pays homage to the Founder’s athletic journey but also symbolises the concept of propelling oneself from point A to point B in a career or life, with strength, speed, and dynamism, to hit the target one desires. Just as a javelin is a warrior’s weapon, Javelin aligns with the notion of Black individuals being strong fighters, resilient against obstacles and systemic oppression.

As a TalentTech scaleup committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, BYP Network has consistently championed the advancement of Black professionals across various industries. With the introduction of Javelin, the organisation now offers a cutting-edge platform that empowers Black talent, enabling them to excel in their careers by connecting them with carefully curated opportunities from BYP’s esteemed global corporate partners. Opportunities include jobs, mentorship, events and content resources based on their career goals.

Javelin is set to transform the way Black professionals navigate the job market, eliminating traditional barriers and biases that hinder career progression. Through a state-of-the-art matching algorithm, it pairs qualified and ambitious candidates with relevant career opportunities that align with their skills, experience, and aspirations. This streamlined process ensures that both professionals and employers can maximise their potential, fostering an ecosystem of growth, inclusivity, and success.

To use the platform, BYP members can create a profile and add specific details including skills, previous experience and career objectives. The smart AI tool then matches members to their personalised opportunities. Javelin is currently in beta phase and is welcoming users to be the first to try it out. Sign up via:

To celebrate the launch of Javelin and mark this pivotal moment, BYP is hosting an exclusive Product Launch Party event. Taking place on July 27th, 2023, at Sway Bar in London, this event promises an unforgettable evening of excitement, networking, and entertainment. Attendees will be treated to delectable canapés, beverages, and electrifying performances and appearances by special guests.

“We are thrilled to unveil Javelin, our game-changing career advancement platform,” said Kike Oniwinde Agoro, Founder and CEO of BYP Network. “By leveraging this innovative technology and our extensive network of corporate partners, Javelin will empower Black professionals and propel them towards exceptional career opportunities.
