Back Her Business – Helping women turn their ideas into reality

Ladies! Have you got a great idea for a business but don’t want to give up your day job? We have a great opportunity for you! Crowdfunder has launched their Side Hustle competition! Use their platform to test your idea, find new customers and make your first sale. It’s really easy to enter. Just check the competition criteria and tell them your idea in 100 words or less before 23 October 2019 to get started.

Only one in three entrepreneurs in the UK are women. If women started businesses at the same rate as men, it would add £250bn to the UK economy. Crowdfunder set up Back Her Business in partnership with NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Ulster Bank to help women get their ideas off the ground. Crowdfunder are offering coaching, support, grant funding and an exclusive platform where women can turn their ideas into businesses through crowdfunding.

Both we and Crowdfunder have big ambitions, and we know we can’t close the gender gap for good without collaborating with others. Throughout the year Crowdfunder are running specially ‘limited time’ campaigns to help encourage new women onto the programme. Best of all, you can meet the Crowdfunder team in person at this year's Women's Business Conference.
