The launch of the f:Entrepreneur campaign celebrating the inspirational women running their own businesses in the UK
A campaign to identify Britain’s 100 most inspiring and multi-achieving female entrepreneurs has officially kicked off, with dynamic businesswomen across the country encouraged to apply to join the ranks of the f:Entrepreneur #ialso 100.
Startacus recently launched Impacting Founders, a new 10-week programme for NI-based female founders, facilitated in partnership with Young Enterprise NI and funded by Ulster Bank, so we are delighted to share word on the f:Entrepreneur campaign.
The f:Entrepreneur campaigncelebrates the inspirational women running their own businesses in the UK. Through events, content and storytelling f:Entrepreneur showcases role models to help and support all small businesses.
Each year a collection of 100 impressive female business owners are spotlighted as part of the #ialso campaign, which recognises the phenomenal contribution of female entrepreneurs who support their peers and communities through their businesses and wider activities.
Reflecting the rich and varied portfolio careers that many female entrepreneurs have today – which often include voluntary, mentoring and community responsibilities, alongside thriving small businesses and side hustles – the #ialso 100 celebrates these impressive, multi-achieving careers.
Now in its third year, f:Entrepreneur was launched in 2017 by Michelle Ovens MBE, who is also the founder of Small Business Britain, the Director of Small Business Saturday UK and Chair of the Small Business Charter.
Michelle Ovens MBE, Founder of Small Business Britain said:
“f:Entrepreneur was started to give more recognition to the phenomenal women who run businesses in the UK. This year, after a tough time for many, we need to celebrate our power women more than ever! Female entrepreneurs have shouldered huge burdens during the pandemic, often juggling a range of responsibilities past their day job. This reflects the growing, wider trend for women to embrace a flexible, multi-portfolio career. We are excited to celebrate the achievements of these amazing women and I’d encourage all female entrepreneurs to apply.”
Sarah Young, VP of Member Engagement at Tide, which sponsors the f:entrepreneur campaign, said:
“Research tells us that role models are hugely powerful in empowering women to start and grow their own businesses, meaning it’s incredibly important that the stories of the inspirational women running brilliant businesses are told and shared. We are excited to see the women in this years’ f:Entrepreneur #ialso 100 and reading their stories.”
