On the 17th September, Ulster Bank is holding a ‘Back her Business’ event at Ulster University, Magee, to discuss the findings, engage in a panel discussion exploring how the North West can encourage and develop female entrepreneurship and to formally launch Back Her Business; the first female-only crowdfunding programme that supports would-be entrepreneurs across the UK.
Although most of the funding will come from “the crowd” – the bank will provide top-up funding of £1 million per year across the UK. We will offer eligible projects up to 50% of an entrepreneur’s fundraising target, capped at £5,000 and, our Northern Ireland Board can also award some projects with further top-up funding.
The programme is open to all women, including those who identify as female. More info and to get started can be found on the Back Her Business site. https://ulsterbankbackherbusiness.co.uk/
