WHAT IS FUND HER NORTH?
Fund Her North is a Northern-based, volunteer collective of over 40 women (in VC’s, funding organisations and angel groups), with a combined investment power of over £1.2 billion.
Each of the members of the Fund Her North collective has already made a lasting effect on female business leaders in the North, with a combined investment track record of over £200 million invested in female-led, start-up businesses.
We believe we are the only organisation of its kind in the UK that brings together women in the investment industry in this way to support female founders.
"The Rose Review finds that only one in three entrepreneurs are women, a gender gap equivalent to over 1 million fewer female entrepreneurs in the UK. Closing the gap between women and men could add an additional £250 billion in Gross Value Add to the UK economy, equivalent to 4 years of economic growth. Crucially, women are also drastically under represented in the most productive sectors with less than one in four entrepreneurs in sectors like transport and information technology being women."
Natwest Group on The Alison Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship
We exist to give Northern, female business leaders equal access to funding to help them successfully scale their businesses.
We do this by providing connections, educating business leaders and by holding their hands through the funding raising process for businesses at all stages.
We support female founders and business leaders through every stage of their growth and funding journey, through start up, scale up, exit and beyond.
