We’re delighted to have partnered with Founders4Schools to celebrate International Women's Day 2018, by producing a publication highlighting inspiring women who are leading some of Britain’s fastest-growing businesses.
Founders4Schools, founded by Sherry Coutu, are an ed-tech charity that invites business leaders into schools to unlock the employability of young people.
The publication highlights the critical role women play in driving economic growth across the UK, with detailed data on 1,283 women-led companies showing a total contribution of £25.9 billion in revenue to the UK economy in 2017. The research shines a light on the hidden figures bolstering economic growth, sharing some of their remarkable stories; to provide a detailed analysis and reference on fast-growth women-led businesses for every investor, MP, Journalist, school in the UK and future entrepreneur.
The publication was officially launched at the London Stock Exchange on 6th March 2018 during a special event in celebration of International Women’s Day, hosted by Founders4Schools and London & Partners, in association with EY.
The event was designed to celebrate women who are leading business growth. With an aim to inspire and support female founders and CEOs who are at an early stage of their scale up journey, by offering guidance and insights from a host of extraordinary women – advisors, mentors and entrepreneurs - who have already grown businesses successfully.
Data from the publication was presented to a room of female Founders and CEOs including the Deputy Mayor of Business for London, Rajesh Agrawal.
