The East Midlands is the most popular region outside of London to be recognised for its Female Start Up businesses, with women accounting for almost 40% of startup funding loans allocated to East Midlands business owners since 2012, according to data from the Government-backed Start Up loans programme ‘British Business Bank’s Start Up Loans’.
With such an incredible rise in female startup businesses, women are increasingly setting up a business independently. Often because running a business offers flexibility around family life and personal commitments with the aspiration to find a ‘work, life, balance’ objective and a desire to have more control over the future of their career and earn a salary which they feel they deserve. Starting a business means that female entrepreneurs can follow their passion. Whether it’s redesigning and producing a product or improving and offering a better service, either option allows female business owners to drive their goals forward, build a business which is sustainable and sell something that they are really proud of.
We’re great multi-taskers! And so additionally female company owners are well known for their ability to get the job done! We create long standing partnerships, we’ll consult others based on recommendations and we’re not afraid to ask for and act on feedback.
