Women in Business Programme

Business Lens

What is Business Lens?

Business Lens is here to help you take a closer look at your business. Through a detailed questionnaire Business Lens will zoom in on the management of your business in seven key areas: financial management & performance, market knowledge, marketing & sales, human resources, strategy & organisation, risk management and operations. Business Lens will then analyse the information you provide to help you look at your business from a new perspective, helping you identify your strengths and most importantly opportunities for further development.

How will Business Lens help you?

After completing the questionnaire, Business Lens will create a report showing your results as well as how you can further develop and finance your business and much more. Whether this means getting personalised advice, accessing finance from one of our your business registration number/tax ID partner banks, strengthening your leadership skills or simply meeting other women entrepreneurs, this report can help you accelerate your business.

The report can be viewed onscreen, downloaded in PDF, printed or saved and viewed later. You can decide to share this information with your team at your next management meeting or with a loan officer to help you secure a loan at a bank. However you may wish to use it, this report is designed to give you a chance to pause, stop and think at how you may want to move your business forward.

What will you need before you start?

You will likely know most of the information you will need off the top of your head but some you may want to look up. You should have ready:

  • your business registration number/tax ID
  • basic information about your business (sector, number of employees, basic information about marketing and operations)
  • basic financials of your business

Business Lens can only be as accurate as the information you provide. To make the most of it we recommend you are as truthful as possible – you can use rounded figures of course!

How long will Business Lens take?

It takes about 20 minutes to complete the questionnaire. You can stop at any time and revisit it at a later stage by logging back in with your username and password. When you have finished, you will get your personalised report immediately.
