Description

What’s holding women back in business? The UK is the start-up capital of Europe, attracting more venture capital than any other European country, yet only one in three UK entrepreneurs is female.

The Government-commissioned Rose Review, by CEO of commercial and private banking at NatWest Alison Rose, examines the barriers women in business face and what can be done to overcome them. Released on International Women’s Day, March 8, the report highlights that the advancement of female entrepreneurs is a £250bn opportunity for the UK economy and that currently female entrepreneurs are underrepresented in the manufacturing, IT, financial services and transportation sectors

The Rose Review recommends increasing funding for women who want to start a business, and providing greater family care support so they can reach their goals.

At this event, Cheryl Gourlay, NatWest’s strategic lead for Women in Business for Wales and the South West, will be outlining the main findings of the Rose Review and the Welsh Government’s Supporting Entrepreneurial Women programme. She will be discussing the current landscape and new initiatives to support women in business.

We will also be joined by NatWest’s Entrepreneur Accelerator Manager Ceri Mulqueen, who will take us through a 30-minute taster session on The Entrepreneurial Mindset. Prepare to be challenged on what you really think and believe about your business and your own capabilities!

And we’ll have a Q&A with entrepreneur Kath Chadwick, a journalist and former BBC Wales Current Affairs producer who is a founder of Front Door Communications, a Penarth-based PR and digital marketing agency. We’ll be asking Kath about her experience of leaving corporate life, the challenges she’s faced, and her advice for anyone thinking of going it alone.
