Summary:

To compliment International Women's Day on Sunday 8th March, NatWest is delighted to be running this Women In Business event. We’re here to help you to turn your idea into a side-hustle and your side-hustle into your main-hustle. It’s time to close the gender gap in business, for good.

Not only do we have money for some of you (and we all know that helps), we also have mentoring, workshops, crowdfunding coaching and events in your community.

So don’t let your potential pass you by. Take the first step!

The Rose Review was launched in March 2019 by Alison Rose, our CEO, at the request of the UK government. The review sets out to identify the disparity between male and female entrepreneurs when starting and scaling businesses, and the barriers facing women.

Alison Rose says this has resulted in 'unrealised potential' for the UK economy. Advancing female entrepreneurship represents a £250 billion opportunity for the UK economy.

So what’s the plan today at this event?

As part of the NatWest Back Her Business programme our partner Crowdfunder is running a free of charge workshop to teach you all about how crowdfunding works, and on how crowdfunding in general and Back Her Business in particular can be an effective way to get your new business up and running.

By joining the session you’ll learn about:

  • The importance of female entrepreneurship to society

  • The Rose Review

  • Back Her Business: how people can access it and the Bank's role

  • What crowdfunding is, and all about Crowdfunder

  • Benefits of crowdfunding, including Back Her Business match funding

  • How to crowdfund

  • Available guidance and support

*Complimentary lunch will be provided. Free Parking is available on site at the hotel.

Be sure to book your spot early as places are limited, and are allocated on a first come first served basis. If you have any special needs or requirements, please let us know, and we'll get in touch with you to discuss them.
