Support for female entrepreneurs

The Rose Review was launched in March 2019, at the request of the UK government. It sets out to identify the disparity between male and female entrepreneurs when starting and scaling businesses, and the barriers facing women.

This has resulted in 'unrealised potential' for the UK economy. Advancing female entrepreneurship represents a £250bn opportunity for the UK economy.
