Rise & Thrive: Navigating Investment as Women Entrepreneurs

We know that women entrepreneurs find getting access to growth capital challenging, and as a result we have launched a new “Rise & Thrive: Navigating Investment as Women Entrepreneurs” programme offering support and training to entrepreneurs scaling their companies. The half-day workshops, to be held every quarter, are being offered as part of Mercia’s commitment to Responsible Investing and will be delivered in partnership with Janet Grant of The Better People.

Event description

The first workshop in the series will take place in Birmingham on 26 September and will cover:

  • Understanding and working with bias
  • Navigating and optimising the investment framework
  • Breaking down the fear of failure and imposter syndrome
  • Accessing and using networks and mentors.

The workshop is specifically designed for founders / senior leaders of scale-up businesses.  There are 20 fully funded places available which will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

The same course will also be offered to those that cannot attend in Birmingham in other key cities: Manchester (November), Leeds (January) and London (March). Please contact to register your interest in future workshops. We’d also love for you to share this invitation with entrepreneurs in your network.
