The Women in FinTech Global Initiative is aimed at bringing more female entrepreneurs to the UK and to help make the UK’s FinTech ecosystem more diverse. The initiative has three pillars.
- Creating an opportunity for likeminded women to meet, inspire, advise and mentor each other.
- Facilitating connections between female entrepreneurs and a supportive investment community that understands the specific challenges faced by women looking to raise capital
- Providing valuable scaling guidance by working with accelerators and incubators to offer women support through their programmes. NatWest is the first company to support DIT’s accelerator programme by offering places to women FinTech entrepreneurs to take part in the 18-month fully-funded programme. The cohort will be offered bespoke coaching, learning, workshops and free office space.
