Our organisation is a mixture of creatives and entrepreneurs with a likeminded goal - to give opportunities to underrepresented communities. This year, we celebrate 9 years of My Runway Group and working with over 15,000 emerging creatives and 500 black businesses.

Yesterday

After overcoming a suicide attempt, Founder Kojo Marfo developed a strong desire to inspire our youth to live fulfilling and rewarding lives. My Runway Show started in 2013, our signature fashion event. In just 3 years, this annual production gave employability opportunities to over 500 emerging creatives in the midlands alone.

In 2016, the tragic loss of our team member to suicide prompted Kojo and the team decided to broaden our engagement within the youth community. My Runway Show had gained significant traction and the team was inundated with requests from those facing challenges related to breaking into the creative industry. Young people were looking for high-profile productions ad campaigns that they could be involved in. This was the start of My Runway Group – a youth empowerment organisation for emerging creatives from underrepresented backgrounds.
