Second Report of the Women and Enterprise APPG

Pathways to Progress: Skills for Success

The Women and Enterprise APPG is proud to present its second report ‘The Future of Female Entrepreneurship. Pathways to Progress: Skills for Success’.

The APPG has conducted this report to explore what steps the Government and the private sector can take together to support female entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey, from the beginning of their education to starting up and then scaling their own businesses.

This second report focuses on three major barriers we have identified as facing female entrepreneurs:

  • Payment terms for small businesses
  • Access to tailored entrepreneurial education and careers guidance at school
  • Collaboration between businesses and local and regional institutions to encourage more female entreneurship

This report highlights areas in which the Government and the private sector can develop their support and understanding of issues specific to women seeking to start and grow a business. It was researched by the Women and Enterprise APPG and funded by Dell Technologies.

First report of the Women and Enterprise APPG

The Future of Female Entrepreneurship: Pathways to Progress

The Women and Enterprise APPG is proud to present its first report ‘The Future of Female Entrepreneurship: Pathways to Progress’.

The APPG has conducted this report to establish the current experience being faced by Female Entrepreneurs. The APPG sees the potential growth of women-owned businesses as an area of economic opportunity for the UK, as they already contribute an impressive £115 billion to the economy, despite the fact that they currently secure significantly less than 5% of corporate and public sector contracts.

This first report focuses on three major issues we have identified as facing female entrepreneurs:

  • Access to finance
  • Business Support, Coaching and Mentoring
  • International Trade and Connections

A lack of gender disaggregated data was also a recurring theme throughout our inquiry which has the consequence of restricting the ability to create effective forward strategies.

This report highlights areas in which the Government and the private sector can develop their support and understanding of issues specific to women seeking to start and grow a business.
