Description

Empowering Women in Business Portsmouth!

To compliment International Women's Day on Sunday 8th March, NatWest is delighted to be running this Women In Business event. We’re here to help you to turn your idea into a side-hustle and your side-hustle into your main-hustle. It’s time to close the gender gap in business, for good.

Not only do we have money for some of you (and we all know that helps), we also have mentoring, workshops, crowdfunding coaching and events in your community.

So don’t let your potential pass you by. Take the first step!

The Rose Review was launched in March 2019 by Alison Rose, our CEO, at the request of the UK government. The review sets out to identify the disparity between male and female entrepreneurs when starting and scaling businesses, and the barriers facing women.


So what’s the plan today at this event?

A little more on the Crowdfunder & Back Her Business workshop....

Have you got a great business idea, but not sure where to start? Do you need some money to help you get your business up and running? Crowdfunding could help.

As part of the NatWest Back Her Business programme, our partner Crowdfunder is running a free of charge workshop to teach you all about how crowdfunding works, and on how crowdfunding in general and Back Her Business in particular can be an effective way to get your new business up and running.

By joining the session you’ll learn about:

• The importance of female entrepreneurship to society

• Back Her Business: how people can access it and the Bank's role

• What crowdfunding is, and all about Crowdfunder

• The benefits of crowdfunding and what makes a good crowdfunding project

• Available guidance and support, including Back Her Business match funding

• A chance to practice your crowdfunding skills, with a prize for the winning team

• A talk from a female project owner about her crowdfunding journey
