Its an exciting time to champion the UK's female entrepreneurs and we're delighted to be working with MPs from all parties and from constituencies across the country.

At MP HERoes we're committed to encouraging female entrepreneurs to set up and scale up their businesses. Highlighting the achievements of female founders at the very heart of Government enables us to fully realise the potential of the nation’s female entrepreneurs. Unlocking the £250bn this could add to GDP.

Our distinguished Advisory Council brings a wealth of experience and industry knowledge alongside political prowess and entrepreneurial passion.
