Fast Track to Funding for Women in Business (Online)

April 17 – At every stage of the business journey, UK women are less likely to pursue entrepreneurialism than men. Only half as many women as men start businesses. Male entrepreneurs are also five times more likely than women to grow their business to £1 million turnover or more.

Lack of start-up funding is cited as the #1 barrier by women. In fact, women start businesses with 53% less capital than men and are less aware of the funding options available to them. Furthermore, growing a business is inhibited by less than 2% of all venture funding going to businesses founded by women. (The Alison Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship, 2018).
