Event description


This must-attend event is delivered by NatWest and is being hosted by Moneypenny

Open to customers & non customers

Join us on the 11th November to discuss the findings on how North Wales can encourage and develop female entrepreneurship and to formally launch Back Her Business, the first female-only crowdfunding programme that supports would-be entrepreneurs across the UK.

Although most of the funding will come from “the crowd” – the bank will provide top-up funding of £1 million per year across the UK. We will offer eligible projects up to 50% of an entrepreneur's fundraising target, capped at £5,000 and our Board can also award some projects with further top-up funding.

The programme is open to all women, including those who identify as female.

On International Women’s Day, the UK Government published the Rose Review, a report on the barriers to women starting and growing their business.

Key themes include:

  • Women make up 33% of entrepreneurs in the UK
  • Achieving parity in start up rates could generate an additional £250bn to the UK economy
  • Currently 1p in every £1 of VC funding goes to female led businesses
  • Networks cannot be under estimated

Look forward to seeing you there.

Mae NatWest yn cyflwyno'r digwyddiad hwn sy'n rhaid ei fynychu ac mae'n cael ei gynnal gan Moneypenny

Yn agored i bawb.

Ymunwch â ni ar 11eg Tachwedd i drafod y canfyddiadau ac archwilio sut y gall Gogledd Cymru annog a datblygu entrepreneuriaeth fenywaidd ac i lansio Back Her Business yn ffurfiol, y rhaglen cyllido torfol gyntaf i ferched yn unig sy'n cefnogi darpar entrepreneuriaid ar draws y DU.

Er y bydd y rhan fwyaf o’r cyllid yn dod o “y dorf” - bydd y banc yn darparu cyllid atodol o £ 1 miliwn y flwyddyn ledled y DU. Byddwn yn cynnig hyd at 50% o darged codi arian entrepreneur, gyda chap o £ 5,000, a gall ein Bwrdd hefyd ddyfarnu cyllid atodol pellach i rai prosiectau.

Mae'r rhaglen yn agored i bob merch, gan gynnwys y rhai sy'n uniaethu fel menywod.

Ar Ddiwrnod Rhyngwladol y Menywod, cyhoeddodd Llywodraeth y DU Adolygiad Rose, adroddiad ar y rhwystrau i fenywod ddechrau a thyfu eu busnes.

Ymhlith y themâu allweddol mae:

  • Mae menywod yn 33% o entrepreneuriaid yn y DU
  • Gallai sicrhau cydraddoldeb mewn cyfraddau cychwyn gynhyrchu £ 250bn ychwanegol i economi'r DU
  • Ar hyn o bryd mae 1c ym mhob £ 1 o gyllid VC yn mynd i fusnesau dan arweiniad menywod
  • Ni ellir tanamcangyfrif rhwydweithiau

Edrychaf ymlaen at eich gweld chi yno.
