Welcome to Silver Upstarts – a podcast interview show sponsored by Made4U
Growing numbers of fabulous older female entrepreneurs are challenging the stereotype of women their age and launching their own businesses.
But they receive scant official encouragement – certainly, that is, in the UK.
In 2017, women-only teams looking to fund new businesses were given £32 million in investment, while male-only teams received more than £5 billion, according to the British Business Bank.
Silver Upstarts aims to enthuse older women to set up in business for themselves.
Each Silver Upstart episode features an interview with an older female entrepreneur who, far from being grey and invisible, is a trailblazer setting a fine example to those considering taking the entrepreneurial plunge.
