Starling offers ‘nest egg’ for our Awards

No excuses for jokes about ‘nest eggs’ over the next few weeks as we announce another brilliant new brand partnership with Starling, an entirely different kind of bank, who are supporting the charity final of the 2017 Funny Women Awards on Monday 12th March in London.

Starling Bank is an entirely different kind of bank. It’s 100% mobile, with a clean, intuitive app that quite literally puts control of your finances at your fingertips, with the added bonus of some smart tools that help you to manage and make sense of your money.  Now, we could all do with some of that!

Starling is the brainchild of Anne Boden who, after decades spent in senior leadership roles at some of the world’s biggest banks, noticed that there was the potential for major developments in the connection between banking and technology. She found herself frustrated by the restrictions still imposed by outdated technology, so decided to solve the problem by building a bank from the ground up.

Anne’s vision for Starling is to build the best bank account in the world – and who wouldn’t want that? She’s also made sure that the company she’s building elevates women in terms of both service and her team.

‘At Starling, we’ve worked really hard to build a company culture where women feel like they have a platform and a voice,” says Anne about our new partnership.  ‘Which is why we’re so excited to be contributing to the brilliant work Funny Women also does to that end.

‘A rising tide lifts all boats, and so does a sense of humour; in fact, as a female CEO in Fintech, it would be more or less impossible to build an entire bank from scratch without one!’

We hear you Anne!

Thanks Starling Bank for your support.
