HOW WE CAN HELP YOU

As a founder that is still developing your idea or concept into a business, we understand that it can be difficult to access the support you need, especially if you are a first-time founder.

Fund Her North is designed to assist you with access to funding when you are ready. But to give you the support you need to become investment ready, we have partnered with NatWest & The Rose Review who offer a range of resources to founders at all stages from the idea stage.

NatWest & The Rose Review - supporting female entrepreneurs to start & scale their business

In 2019, The Rose Review highlighted the stark disparity between male and female entrepreneurs, and the unrealised potential that represents for the UK economy. Key findings included:

Women receive less than 1% of venture capital and have an  average starting capital 50% lower than men

They are less aware of funding options than men, which  presents a huge opportunity.

Over 1,100 new businesses launch in Britain each day, but only one in three of the entrepreneurs involved is female

Businesses led by women are typically only 44% the size of  male-led businesses, and five times less likely to scale up

Female entrepreneurs are under-represented in transport and  information technology, two of the most productive sectors of  the UK economy
