WELCOME TO THE FUND HER NORTH NETWORK!

Fund Her North exists to support Northern female-led businesses on their fundraising journey, and to help close the gender funding gap which exists in the UK. The main way we achieve this is by providing warm introductions to our network of women inside VC's, angel groups and other funding organisations.

NEXT STEPS

In order for us to share your investment opportunity with our network and assess the most relevant support for you, you will need to have the following documentation:

  • Pitch deck (a draft version is also accepted)

  • Financial forecast

  • How much you are looking to raise/traction to date

Our Community Manager, Amirah Darr, will be in touch to learn more about your business and your current raise. 

If you do not have the above documentation, we will refer you directly across to our partners at NatWest who offer FREE business support and can help you prepare these documents to get you investment ready.

Manage Your Personal Wealth

Everything we do at Fund Her North is made possible by our amazing partnerships with key funders and supporting organisations in the UK.

UBS are one of Fund Her North's Cornerstone Partners and have been offering financial advice to high net worth individuals for over 150 years.

As a business leader, it is likely that you spend significantly more time thinking about business finances than thinking about your own.

If you are in the position where you are managing £1m+ investable assets, UBS can offer you total wealth solutions, from wealth planning to investing in philanthropy. 

Once you sign up, we are happy to introduce you to our partners at UBS.
