sorry for the bespoke question here (but they are all to some extent).
I was wondering if any woman Entrepreneur or woman-led business had gone for matched funding equity with the Aspire Fund?
For reference : the £12.5m Aspire Fund targets support for Women led businesses across the UK. The fund is able to make equity investments of between £100k and £1m, on a co-investment basis, in order to help strong businesses grow.
The objective of the fund is to increase the number of successful Women led businesses within the UK, ensuring that those with real potential to succeed are not held back through a lack of growth capital.
