Meta collaborates with NatWest on #SheMeansBusiness initiative

Meta and NatWest have formed a new partnership that will offer "financial readiness training" and other support to female entrepreneurs.

The training is part of Meta’s #SheMeansBusiness initiative, which provides digital skills training and opportunities to expand business connections and networks.

“Women small business owners have fought to keep their doors open during this pandemic,” said Carrie Timms, director of global business marketing, EMEA at Meta. “We at Meta want to stand by them, which is why we’re proud to partner with NatWest on this new #SheMeansBusiness programme.

“Whether it’s help getting an ad campaign up and running, or expert advice on business finance, we hope these new offerings will help women entrepreneurs come back from the pandemic stronger than ever.”

The partnership will also launch a competition to offer 50 female entrepreneurs the chance to win Meta advertising credits, 1:1 digital mentorship and support to build a creative advertising campaign, as well as NatWest coaching and peer-to-peer sessions.

“More women than ever are starting up businesses and we must harness this potential,” said Julie Baker, head of enterprise at NatWest Group. “The latest Rose Review progress report showed that women are starting more businesses than ever: last year 140,000 new businesses were founded by women compared to 56,000 in 2019.”
