Pioneers Postis the magazine for social enterprise, impact investment and mission-driven business, reporting on the state of social enterprise in the UK and globally. It connects with more than 150,000 people each year across 195 countries and territories through its website, social media channels and printed quarterly publication. As a social enterprise, any profits it makes are ploughed back into its mission to share news, debate, ideas and best practice to help ‘do good business better’.

NatWest has had a specialist Community Finance team that run programmes and

partnerships to promote community businesses across the UK since 1998. With over 400 trained and accredited Women in Business specialists across the UK, it is well placed to support female entrepreneurs set up and scale their business through access to finance, networking and events.

NatWest Social & Community Capital is an independent charity, supported by NatWest, which provides loans of between £30,000 and £750,000 along with business support to viable social enterprises who make a positive impact but who are unable to access mainstream funding. It funds charities and enterprises with a social legal structure, who are financially viable, demonstrating impact within the communities in which they operate, who are investment ready but who have been declined by a mainstream bank.
