Back Her Business

Your business idea.
Our backing.

We want Back Her Business to be the UK’s most exciting and accessible business start-up programme for women EVER.

We’re here to help you to turn your idea into a side-hustle and your side-hustle into your main-hustle. It’s time to close the gender gap in business, for good.

Not only do we have money for some of you (and we all know that helps), we also have mentoring, workshops, crowdfunding coaching and events in your community.

So don’t let your potential pass you by. Take the first step.

UK residents with new UK projects can apply. Eligibility (including type of project), and specific criteria apply. Fees apply, see the help centre for more details.

Ready to take the first step?

Get inspired

The best way to get motivated for your own idea is to see how other women, just like you, are making things happen with Back Her Business.
