Back Her Business – Free Event
6pm-8pm – July 16, Ocean Studios, Royal William Yard, Plymouth, PL1 3RP
Women with great ideas in Plymouth & Devon are invited to make their idea happen with up to £5,000 of funding at a free Back Her Business event. Crowdfunder is to launch Back Her Business with a free hands-on event in Plymouth, Devon.
The event is open to women who are curious to learn more about running their own business and how they can make that happen. It will also reveal how women can secure up to £5,000 of match funding if they join the programme and crowdfund. By joining the session you’ll learn about:
- The importance of female entrepreneurship to society
- Back Her Business: how people can access it and the Bank’s role
- What crowdfunding is, and all about Crowdfunder
- The benefits of crowdfunding and what makes a good crowdfunding project
- Available guidance and support, including Back Her Business match funding
- A chance to practice your crowdfunding skills, with a prize for the winning team
- A talk from a female project owner about her crowdfunding journey
Back Her Business was developed in response to a new study which shows only 5.6 per cent of women run their own business in the UK. Crowdfunder has launched the first ever female led crowdfunding platform ‘Back her Business’ to help close this gender gap, offering financial incentives, coaching, mentoring and networking events.
Be sure to book your spot early as places are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. If you have any special needs or requirements, please let us know, and we’ll get in touch with you to discuss them.
We hope the free event will inspire and enable project owners to have the confidence they need to make their idea a reality – as well as providing super useful tips and skills advice on how to crowdfund.” The event is part of a programme which aim to inspire and engage early stage female entrepreneurs.
