100 Female Entrepreneurs to Watch.

Three women whose ventures have participated in the Cambridge Social Ventures programme at Cambridge Judge Business School have been included in the “100 Female Entrepreneurs to Watch” list by National Westminster Bank and Telegraph Media Group. 

Aoise Keogan-Nooshabadi of Supply Change, a platform which connects pre-vetted social suppliers to buyers, was named to the “Highly Commended” list. Supply Change is currently on the Cambridge Social Ventures programme at the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation at Cambridge Judge. 

Beth Kume-Holland from Patchwork Hub, an employment platform that tackles barriers to employment by disabled people and other marginalised groups, and Tina Chen from HumaniTea, which produces tea latte oat milk-based drinks in recyclable cans, are on the “Commended” list. Patchwork Hub is currently enrolled in Cambridge Social Ventures, while HumaniTea was previously on the programme. 

Those making the 100 list earn assistance such as mentorship, an “enterprise health check” and possible investment from a venture capital firm focused on high-growth-strategy firms with at least one woman in an executive equity-holding post. 

Said Alison Rose, NatWest CEO and a judge for the competition: “The ambition and resilience of the business owners came across strongly in the applications. Their successes are remarkable and how they explained they would benefit from being part of The 100 made an impression. I’m confident we have some of the most exciting high potential female-owned businesses included in The 100.”
