Female entrepreneurs

Our recent research on female entrepreneurs makes interesting reading! Here are some of the highlights:

  • The number of female entrepreneurs in the UK has doubled since 2009
  • They contributed £3.5bn to the UK economy in 2015
  • The number peaked in 2012, and since then the decline in this area has cost the UK £1bn a year

Our podcast series

June Sarpong presents a brand new series of 6 episodes for NatWest, championing Women in Business

The Podcasts follow the stories of emerging entrepreneurs. We'll be hearing about the highs and the lows, with tips and advice from guest mentors in a range of areas. You'll also hear from our own Women in Business specialists on how NatWest can help.

New episode - In the final episode of the series we meet Sammy Andrews, a respected music industry exec, who has recently embarked on a new business journey as the founder of strategy/analytics company Deviate Digital. At three months in, she explains why she turned down the salary of a lifetime to run her own company, balancing risk and tackling gender equality in the industry along the way.

Coda Falconry - off to a flying start

Coda falconry

People may see falconry as a man's sport, but Sarah had always dreamed of opening her own centre. 

Thanks to her determination, a solid business plan and some support from NatWest and our Women in Business team, she succeeded.

Sarah opened Coda Falconry in her local, urban area, giving more people the chance to experience birds of prey.

Balance Me - turning your passion into a business

Balance Me

Rebecca and Claire were tired of spending their lives working long days for someone else. So they combined their expertise in the beauty industry with a family entrepreneurial spirit to create Balance Me.

But launching a new skincare brand needs guidance, as well as funding. This is where Jonathan from NatWest stepped in to help. He sorted out the finance but also introduced them to contacts who went on to really help their business.
