Back Her Business

Your business idea.

Our backing.

Helping women turn their ideas into reality

We want to support more women to start businesses, so we've teamed up with Crowdfunder to help you get started. Together we'll help you raise money for your business through crowdfunding, and we'll also provide free coaching, mentoring and opportunities to meet like minded women. What’s more we’re also offering up to 50% of your fundraising target (max. £5,000) in grant funding for certain successful projects.

You can read more about how this works in our eligibility criteria. Our regional boards are also going to be offering funding to certain successful projects. You can find out more about how the regional board funding works, and whether you’re eligible for it, from 31 May.

UK residents with new UK projects can apply. Eligibility (including type of project) and specific criteria apply.
