Goal 17's Founder, Fran Boorman, has been featured in the Sunday Telegraphs Top 100 Female Entrepreneurs in recognition of her work building the company.
The exclusive list identified women from across the UK making a significant impact to the economy through their business endeavours. Goal 17 was highlighted for the exceptional services and the social value and difference they make within the communities where they operate.
The Telegraph list was motivated in response to The Rose Review, let by Natwest CEO, Alison Rose. The review highlighted that the U.K. economy is missing out on £250bn a year from women not fulfilling their entrepreneurship potential. By highlighting more role models like Frant hey hope to inspire more women to lead enterprises.
Fran is already a big champion of this work. In additional to leading Goal 17 she also chairs one of the working groups for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Women in Enterprise. The work that Goal 17 do often helps support more diversity and inclusion in organisations and we continue to lead the way with mentoring.
