Dream Bigger is a fully funded programme focused on developing transferrable entrepreneurial skills in 16-18 year old females across the UK. Their aim is to drive confidence in preparation for the future world of work and impact the percentage of women who intend to start a business. Their organisation is one that champions potential and one that helps people, families and businesses to thrive – and as the UK’s biggest bank for business – they understand the skills required for the future world of work.
The Rose Review was launched in March 2019 by Alison Rose, CEO, at the request of the UK government. The review sets out to identify the disparity between male and female entrepreneurs when starting and scaling businesses, and the barriers facing women.
Alison Rose says this has resulted in ‘unrealised potential’ for the UK economy and advancing female entrepreneurship represents a £250 billion opportunity.
