Rhian said: I am incredibly honored to have been selected as one of Top 100 inspirational female entrepreneurs in the UK. This award comes at a time when the team and myself have had to work incredibly hard over the last year to keep the business moving forward in these challenging times. To have the business community’s recognition at the start of 2021 is a very proud moment for my team and I.
Both f:Entrepreneur and Small Business Britain were founded by Michelle Ovens CBE, who is also the director of Small Business Saturday UK.
“Congratulations to all the inspiring women chosen to join this year’s #ialso100,” said Michelle Ovens. “Despite the significant obstacles thrown at them in the last year, female entrepreneurship continues to grow and flourish. We need to continue, and increase, our support for these incredible women and celebrate their amazing strength and success in the face of huge challenges.”

Michelle Ovens CBE set up the f:Entrepreneur Campaign, which launched on International Women’s Day 2017, because of the growing sense that there should be more recognition for the power women who run so many businesses in the UK.
The goal of the campaign is to celebrate the dynamic and inspirational businesses led by women in the UK.
It is aimed at both men and women, because everyone has something to learn from these stories of challenge and success.
Through events, content and storytelling, f:Entrepreneur showcases role models to help and inspire all small businesses.
