Access 2 Funding
Disabled entrepreneurs are an essential part of the UK economy, accounting for 8.6% of the turnover of UK businesses. Many disabled entrepreneurs have set up their own businesses to fill a gap ion the market, disrupt a sector or simply have control over their own time. Despite so much entrepreneurial activity in the community, the gap in support and opportunities available to develop and grow disabled-owned businesses is seismic. The Access2Funding campaign calls on early-stage investors to improve the representation, experience and opportunities presented to disabled founders. We are also collecting never-before-reported data on the current disparities and barriers disabled founders face when trying to grow their business.
