The Female Entrepreneur Series New Events!

NatWest Commercial Banking and ELITE are delighted to invite you to the Female Entrepreneur Series. The series of digital events is designed to bring the community of female entrepreneurs, investors and experts together, providing a great opportunity to share your experience as a business leader and learn from others.

UK has an impressive record of entrepreneurialism, attracting more venture capital and having a higher rate of start-ups than any other European nation. And whilst the UK scores highly in female entrepreneurship worldwide, it still lags behind some of its best-in-class peer countries as Natwest’s Alison Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship finds. Covid-19 pandemic could further increase the gap in access to funding for female led businesses and set us back.

This series will focus on sharing experiences in dealing with business disruption in these uncertain times and learning about the variety of funding options available in both the short term and long term. As well as a number of exciting speakers, there will also be an opportunity to virtually meet other like-minded female founders and share growth journeys, pitfalls and successes.
