Our specialist programme for women in business
In partnership with Women in Business, NatWest and RBS are providing female entrepreneurs with expertise, finance and opportunities for skills development and networking. We’ve appointed more than 250 accredited Women in Business Specialists to support this important and growing market. They offer women entrepreneurs a boost at the very beginning of their journey, and help existing businesses grow.
Unlocking the potential
Encouraging and enabling more women to start their own businesses is vital for the economy. It’s estimated that there would be one million more female entrepreneurs if women were setting up new businesses at the same rate as men. This could add £60bn to the UK’s GDP by 2030.
Our commitment to UK start-ups
Helping aspiring entrepreneurs, start-ups and high-growth businesses achieve their goals is vital. It’s in our interest as a bank, but also helps create jobs and support economic growth across the country. That’s why our businesses across the bank have recently joined forces on the RBS’ entrepreneur strategy to support UK businesses and communities.
