Small Business Britain Campaign To Find UK’s Inspiring Female Entrepreneurs.

Brilliantfemale entrepreneurs across the UK are being encouraged to apply to take part in a campaign which showcases inspiring women running their own businesses, and offers support. 

The f: Entrepreneur campaign, delivered by Small Business Britain, is opening applications for this year’s #ialso 100 from 1 September.

Each year the campaign features a phenomenal line-up of 100 female business owners, to recognise the growing tide of women running businesses whilst also juggling a roster of roles and responsibilities which support their peers and communities.

Research undertaken by the campaign earlier this year signalled a strong entrepreneurial outlook among women, despite the challenges of the pandemic. Almost one fifth (17%) of women in the UK reported considering starting their own businesses, and two fifths (42%) said they were motivated to turn a passion into a business.

The f : Entrepreneur campaign aims to profile and grow this trend by spotlighting role models to inspire all small businesses, as well as offering skills training and networking opportunities with its large, vibrant community. Now in its fourth year, the impact of the campaign has grown year -on-year and it attracted a record number of applications for the 2020 #ialso100.

Michelle Ovens CBE, who launched f-entrepreneur in 2017 and is also the founder of Small Business Britain said, “It is so inspiring to see female entrepreneurship flourishing so much in the UK today, despite the massive challenges of the last eighteen months. We started f:Entrepreneur to celebrate phenomenal women and support their success. It has become clear that amazing things happen when women come together to help each other. I’d encourage any woman running a small business in the UK today who has a fantastic story to tell, to get involved and put yourself forward.”

Applications for the f:Entrepreneur #ialso 100 are open until  September 30, 2021 and it is free to enter.
