Jackie Waring, Founder & CEO Investing Women
Jackie is an entrepreneur with a passion for helping other entrepreneurs.
Having set up her own company in 2003, Jackie has run 3 companies, including a turnaround 50 employee business, and she has served on multiple boards.
At 25 Jackie was the youngest CEO in the UK enterprise sector. Learning from some of Scotland’s top entrepreneurs on her Board, she quickly developed a ‘can do’ approach to business and leading change. This approach earned her the title Scottish Young Career Woman of the Year and a finalist Entrepreneur of the Year, along with several other awards.
Jackie led the Access to Finance for Women Agenda for the UK government as an external advisor which led to a passionate interest to increase the UKs level of Women Angels; recognising this as a major market opportunity. She was also appointed the UK’s first Advisory Board Member to the Global Banking Alliance for Women, based in Washington DC.
Sam supports businesses with social media marketing and supports Investing Women with social media and community management. Sam comes from a entrepreneurial support background so is well placed to help Investing Women build their entrepreneurial community.
As a business owner and web designer Julie works with SMEs to develop and implement strategies for online marketing. She has combined both her business experience and her passion for developing women in business to work with Jackie and the Investing Women team to develop a strong online presence.
