"At NatWest, female entrepreneurship is a huge focus for us and given the disproportionate impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on female-led businesses, there is no better time than now to be amplifying this support in whatever way we can. We already work with a number of great female-led businesses across Wales, so the opportunity to support USW to deliver their programme is hugely exciting."

"Being involved in the Women's Entrepreneurship (WEH) network is a way of getting regular doses of inspiration, motivation, confidence and ‘know-how’! It connects women thinking about working for themselves, those already starting businesses and those well established as business owners."

Christine Atkinson
Head of Women's Entrepreneurship Hub, USW
