Ulster Bank Enterprise Fund

Founded in 2019, the Ulster Bank Enterprise Fund came as a result of a review, which found that access to finance was the number one barrier recognised by female and ethnic minority entrepreneurs. 

We've partnered with various organisations to champion diverse entrepreneurship across Northern Ireland who will put this grant money towards delivering fully-funded programmes for new, underrepresented entrepreneurs.
