About the Founder
tulsans.co.uk the online marketplace for African/Caribbean vendors. Was founded by Javan Adjei, a Ghanaian man born in the UK who grew up in south London.
Javan decided to create tulsans because he heard far too many misfortunate events and mis-treatments happening to his community. He essentially felt part of the problem is that we do not have any infrastructure or economic leverage, so in a sense we have all had to rely on a system which has been created to keep us below.
So the concept behind tulsans is just that in 2020 there have not been economic changes that leverage our community, we’re bringing black entrepreneurs into one online space and allowing that coin to circulate, ‘tulsans is the community where you matter’ where black people can become the suppliers of our culture that will in turn help to increase our economic leverage in society.
