Women do not lack ability or ambition. Yet only 1 in 3 UK entrepreneurs is female: a gender gap equivalent to 1.1 million missing businesses*
The Women Entrepreneurs Network aims to achieve gender parity across the Entrepreneurship Institute's activities, with a key aim to ensure that half of the ventures on the King’s20 Accelerator are women-led.
The network is open to all students, staff and alumni at King's and increases your exposure to entrepreneurial skills, knowledge sharing and community building.
Throughout the year, we run events, workshops and classes including, workshops on launching your own business, coding classes and an annual two day retreat.
Activities focus on inspiring you with the message that entrepreneurship can be a career pathway and help you develop your entrepreneurial skill set. We are creating a community of women with an entrepreneurial spirit, who are empowered to support each other’s ideas and ventures and who share learning and experiences.

This report is our guide to supporting women entrepreneurs and creating bigger change in the world of entrepreneurship. The Women Entrepreneurs Network is a three-year programme supported by Santander Universities.
We find it really motivating to be in such an exciting community of passionate entrepreneurs at the Entrepreneurship Institute. As a small company, if we were just working alone, we wouldn’t have the same energy, buzz, collaboration and idea sharing. We’ve already had tonnes of informal coffees to go over strategies and learn from each other’s mistakes.
