Investment Contest Available to Companies Led by Women

Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, in collaboration with NatWest and the British Business Bank, is hosting the Women Entrepreneurs Pitch Competition, providing women-led SMEs and start-ups the opportunity to pitch to a live panel of investors. The competition aims to bridge the gap between female entrepreneurs and investors seeking high-potential businesses in the region. The live panel will include investors from Mercia Asset Management, Midven, and SFC Capital.

Scheduled for December 7 at a Birmingham city center venue, the event allows female-founded or co-founded businesses to pitch directly to investors actively looking for investment opportunities. The competition will also recognize one firm as the “one to watch” and the overall winner.

To qualify for pitching to the panel, businesses must demonstrate clear growth potential and be founded or co-founded by women. The initiative aligns with the NatWest Women In Business Taskforce for the region, aiming to support growth and collaboration among SMEs in the post-COVID-19 economy.

Harinder Kunor, Ecosystem Manager at NatWest, highlighted the collaborative efforts of the taskforce in providing SMEs with the necessary information and support to stimulate a strong and sustainable recovery post-pandemic. The event not only offers a platform for female entrepreneurs to pitch to potential investors but also serves as an opportunity to grow their profiles and networks.

Henrietta Brealey, CEO of Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, expressed enthusiasm for leveraging the networks and knowledge of expert teams and partners to support women entrepreneurs in the region.
