Business Networking Lunch – Championing Female Entrepreneurs

The UK has one of the most vibrant entrepreneurial communities in the world, but only one in three of our entrepreneurs is female - we need to be more ambitious and find ways to unlock the huge untapped potential. The launch of the Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship provides the routes for how we, business, public sector and Government, can achieve this together. 




Vicky Stevens - Coast to Capital Banker in Residence.


Vicky is extremely passionate about supporting female entrepreneurs and she is delighted to have been given the exciting opportunity to work on this secondment project with Coast to Capital. 

She is looking forward to reaching out to women in business to hear about their experiences applying for grant funding and the barriers that prevent female entrepreneurs reaching out to access support.


Martin Carruthers - Access to Finance Growth Manager - Grant Thornton - will give an update on funding opportunities.


Gareth Sear – The Business Hot House Programme Manager – University of Chichester – will talk about the exciting new £11m part EU funded business support programme.


There will be plenty of opportunity to network so please remember your business cards.


This event includes a two-course lunch and there is FREE car parking at the venue.
