One of the world's largest global wealth managers, UBS, has partnered with Fund Her North, working to improve access to finance for female-led businesses.
Fund Her North is made up of over 28 women in venture capital, including Samantha Piddington (Head of Corporate Finance - Deepbridge Capital), funding organisations and angel groups with a combined investment power of over £450m.
The partnership with UBS will extend Fund Her North’s network and capabilities to support female entrepreneurs who are looking for personal finance advice and guidance around funding strategies from start up through the growth phases.
The organisation has facilitated investment worth more than £4.2m for six Northern businesses - Umii, Supplywell, Green Bean, K9 Nation, Settl'd and Culture Shift.
Helen Oldham, co-founder of Fund Her North and founding board director of North Invest, commented: "As we reflect on a year since launching Fund Her North, we are incredibly proud of all that we have achieved. Not only have we been able to significantly support seven promising, female-founded businesses, we are also seeing our community of female entrepreneurs and investors expanding, with a joint mission to instigate change in the industry.
