Support for female entrepreneurs
The Rose Review was launched in March 2019, at the request of the UK government. It sets out to identify the disparity between male and female entrepreneurs when starting and scaling businesses, and the barriers facing women.
This has resulted in 'unrealised potential' for the UK economy. Advancing female entrepreneurship represents a £250bn opportunity for the UK economy.
An extra £1bn of funding available for Women in Business
In 2021, we made an additional £1 billion in funding available to help support female-led businesses in the UK recover from the impact of COVID-19, this builds on the £1 billion announced in January 2020. You can apply for funding through our range of loan and finance options.
