Venue: County Hall
PR1 8XJ Preston
Join us for the next event in our Role Model series powered by NatWest as we hear from a stellar panel discussing funding for entrepreneurs supported by the findings of The Alison Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship:
Access to and awareness of funding was highlighted as the number one issue for female entrepreneurs across the entire entrepreneurial journey, from intention to scale-up. Indeed, female-led businesses receive less funding than those headed by men at every stage of their journey. Start-up funding is the #1 barrier mentioned by women non-entrepreneurs: women launch businesses with 53% less capital on average than men, are less aware of funding options and less likely to take on debt. Only 1% of all venture funding goes to businesses founded by all-female teams, inhibiting scale up.
Panel to include Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, Access to Finance and a NatWest relationship manager.
We look forward to seeing you on 12th June!
