FQ Forum

"Over the next decade, the impact of women on the global economy will be at least as significant as that of China and India.

Women are the next emerging market in the world. They will wield enormous influence over politics, business and society "

Scaling for Success


Highlighting disruptive growth of women-owned businesses, FQ builds on the success of over 10-years of its quarterly enterprise forum at the House of Lords and six annual events held at London’s Shard. During the pandemic these events continue online and have expanded to embrace a wider audience with the creation of WBW Day and the WBW Caucus.

The forum focus is innovation and growth of women-owned businesses across all sectors and their multi-billion-dollar contribution and positive impact on the world economy.

Major Influencers


FQ is created and hosted by Savvitas in association with the Enterprise Research Centre and a number of All-Party Parliamentary Groups to provide an interactive platform for UK and international entrepreneurs, business leaders, parliamentarians, and the entire enterprise ecosystem.

The programme features renowned keynote speakers from all sectors. Many of the world's most successful businesswomen and men attend, along with hand-picked delegates including Ministers, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, MPs, media and VIP guests.

Objectives and Outcomes

The primary aim of FQ is interactive dialogue between diverse delegates, sharing opportunities and routes to innovative business growth in the UK and internationally. FQ generates tangible policy ideas and explores opportunities for international collaboration through practical interventions.

Proposals generated are communicated via the annual FQ report and action plan. FQ delegates and the Savvitas team also contribute insights to ongoing research and policy both in the UK and more widely, on enterprise and entrepreneurship, civil society, gender and human rights.
