NatWest: Back Her Business

NatWest: Back Her Business

PNE Group are supporting the NatWest Back Her Business initiative, launched in March 2019, which provides access to finance and support for female entrepreneurs.


“We were told that they felt there was a lack of appropriate finance, mentoring, role models, local support and tailored advice and with Back Her Business, we want to tackle this head on.”

Jill Arnold, sustainable banking lead at NatWest


About Back Her Business

The initiative invites female entrepreneurs and women-led businesses to crowdfund through its platform, with the bank potentially ‘topping up’ crowd sourced funding by up to £5,000 or 50% of the total raised, pledging £1 million a year to this provision. Those taking part will also be able to develop their ideas via a range of support options, such as coaching, mentoring and opportunities for collaboration.
