2019 NatWest everywoman Awards - Partners and Sponsors
Partners and Sponsors
2019 marks the 17th year that NatWest have been proud to support the NatWest everywoman Awards. It is more important than ever that our backing for female entrepreneurs is tangible and effective. Our Deputy CEO Alison Rose launched a review earlier this year on behalf of HM Treasury, into the disparity that exists between male and female entrepreneurs, focusing on the fact that up to £250 billion of new value could be added to the economy if women started and scaled businesses to the same rate as men. To help address this NatWest partnered with Crowdfunder to launch Back Her Business earlier this year, the UK’s first bank-led, female crowdfunding initiative and we now have over 500 Women in Business specialists to empower and support female entrepreneurs.
BRAND OF THE FUTURE AWARD
The White Company is now in its 25th year. What began as a small mail-order concept for beautifully designed, affordable home accessories (mainly in white). Today, The White Company has grown into one of the most-established multi-channel retailers nationally, with a growing international presence having opened two stores in New York. “The White Company is delighted to sponsor the Brand of the Future Award, awarded to the female founder of a young brand that demonstrates great potential for growth. I passionately believe in everywoman’s invaluable support of women in all aspects of business life, helping them to achieve their full potential. I am looking forward to hearing about all the inspirational finalists and winners of the NatWest everywoman Awards.”

The Daily Mail is very proud to sponsor the NatWest Everywoman Aphrodite Award for Mumpreneurs once again this year, and to support the amazing women who take on the twin challenge of starting a business and raising a family. The Daily Mail has more ABC1 readers than any other daily newspaper and Mail Online is the biggest newspaper website in the world. We reach more than 29 million readers a month in print and online.
I became involved with everywoman when I was fortunate enough to win the Artemis award in 2015. Since then I have been a regular sponsor and privileged judge. Through everywoman I have met inspiring women with incredible stories which deserve to be told. I believe passionately in everywoman’s ability to promote the achievement of women in all aspects of business as well as offering support, experience and mentorship to any woman who needs them.
Founder and Managing Director
At Montezuma’s, we absolutely love supporting NatWest everywoman Awards. As a past NatWest everywoman Award winner herself, our co-founder Helen Pattinson knows the excitement and pride around winning such a prestigious award. As a business with ethics at our heart, the Gaia Award, recognising founders of successful businesses with a social and community benefit, is a perfect fit. We look forward to celebrating female founders and meeting this year’s winners and finalists at the Awards.
