FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS: 
keeping pace in a changing world

 

In the current climate, entrepreneurs around the country are demonstrating their flexibility and vision as demand for new products and services create an unprecedented opportunity for innovation and enterprise. Centered on the theme ‘Female entrepreneurship: keeping pace in a changing world,’ the 18th annual NatWest everywoman Awards will identify and celebrate the inspirational female founders whose creativity and resilience will help Britain weather the current economic storm.

Announcing £330 billion in state loan guarantees for businesses and £20 billion in tax relief and grants, alongside earlier efforts in last month’s budget to boost enterprise, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has recognised the invaluable contribution of entrepreneurs and small businesses, which provide three fifths of employment in the UK. However, studies show that funding directed at female-led businesses remains woefully lacking, leading to a major economic shortfall. It is estimated that female entrepreneurs could contribute £250 billion to the economy if they had opportunities to start and scale their businesses at the same rate as men. The disparity creates an economically short-sighted disadvantage for women, particularly at a time of uncertainty when talent and enterprise are needed the most.

This is why the NatWest everywoman Awards is so important - for 18 years it has built a community of female business owners and exemplary role models to share knowledge and ideas, connecting them with advisors, peers and potential investors.

RECOMMEND SOMEONE TO ENTER

 

Since we launched these awards in 2002 we have seen thousands of entrepreneurs share the highs and the lows of their business journeys.  The country, indeed the world, now faces its biggest economic challenge in generations.  It will be the entrepreneurs who will be sufficiently adroit to identify and act on the opportunities.  All eyes will be on the business community in the months ahead and our focus will be on the extraordinary women whose vision, energy and ambition will contribute to Britain’s recovery.
