The Female Founders Forum is a group of some of the UK's most successful female entrepreneurs. Last year, we brought these figures together to address the finance gap. In 2017/18 we connected our members with some of the UK's most ambitious female founders at speed mentoring events. This year we are hosting a series of roundtables to share ideas and experiences of leadership in entrepreneurship.
The Female Founders Forum was set up to encourage, support and promote female entrepreneurship. It is designed to connect some of the UK’s most inspirational women entrepreneurs with those on the cusp of rapid growth.
2016 saw us bring together big name entrepreneurs and host high-level roundtables where experiences around financing a business were shared and practical advice offered to aspiring female founders. Each roundtable was written up into a briefing paper, and the comments were used to form part of our Untapped Unicorns report.
In 2017/18 we built on the enthusiasm for practically supporting female entrepreneurs with speed mentoring events in London, Manchester and Cambridge. The culmination of this work was our practical Mentoring Matters report. If you’d like to get involved in the 2019 project, please sign up to our quarterly e-bulletin to be kept updated or get in touch with Annabel Denham.
