The funding will support 100 local women entrepreneurs in the South East Midlands to receive business planning and development support, empowering them to turn their entrepreneurial ideas into successful ventures.

It will facilitate one-on-one business planning sessions for each participant, followed by monthly accountability, training, networking and 30-day review sessions.

This grant from NatWest is a significant step towards achieving that goal, and we are excited to see the positive impact it will have on our participants.”
