Inspiring Women in Enterprise

In the UK, twice as many men as women start a business. We want to change that. We want to enhance the role of women entrepreneurs. RBS has launched Inspiring Women in Enterprise to tackle this issue head on. With access to a support network offering expert advice, together with funding opportunities, we believe more women can be inspired and enabled to succeed in business.

One of the practical ways we’re helping is by offering funding to not-for-profit organisations who work with women to facilitate and support them to start out in business. Each year we set aside £500,000 of funding and invite organisations to submit their proposals and apply for funds to run programmes that support the next generation of women entrepreneurs throughout the UK.

Applications for the fifth round of Inspiring Women in Enterprise funding are now closed. Public voting for the shortlisted organisations will open on Monday 10th November at noon.

*This is the financial and in kind contributions which we have made to the sector.
