Building Your Business
Competition for Female Entrepreneurs in Northern Ireland

24 March 2021


Applications for the 2021 YES YOU CAN £20K Pitching competition are now OPEN! 

The Yes You Can - £20K Pitching Competition is part of a three-year Female Enterprise Programme, set up through a collaboration between the eleven local councils of Northern Ireland, Invest NI and Women in Business.

The initiative provides an opportunity for female-owned businesses to make a pitch for a slice of a £20,000 prize pot.

Regional winners will be awarded prize money of £3,000. Each winner will be required to deliver their winning pitch at the virtual Female Entrepreneurs Conference in June 2021. The best pitch on the day will go on to win a further £2,000.

Innovative, female-run companies in Northern Ireland with a defined USP are being encouraged to take part. Qualifying businesses can be pre-starts, start-ups or existing enterprises that are already trading and have plans for growth.

The deadline for regional pitching entries is 12pm Friday 23 April 2021.
