In March 2019, the UK Government commissioned The Alison Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship. This review identified that up to £250 billion could be added to the UK economy if women entrepreneurs scaled new businesses at the same rate as men.
What is the Academy of Women Entrepreneurs?
The Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) was founded specifically to help women entrepreneurs to scale their businesses by tapping into the uncharted potential within themselves and their business.
“Although there is a little bit of superhuman in every woman entrepreneur, unfortunately, leading a successful business is not an innate capacity. It requires a specific skill set and knowledge. That is the reason why more than 50% of the SMEs fail in their first 5 years, and only a handful of female business owners are able to grow their businesses beyond £ 1 million. Most of the remaining ones struggle to survive, leading to stress-filled lives for their owners. Our workshops are able to help women manage their businesses, learn new skills and expand their networks, which in turn will lead them down a very successful route”.
Ceylan Boyce, Founder The Academy For Women Entrepreneurs
