1 Mins

Sherry Coutu is without question one of the most successful business women living in Britain today. Her investments and business interests include LinkedIn, LoveFilm, Interactive Investors, ArtFinder, Seedcamp, NESTA and many more – she is a serial entrepreneur par excellence.

Speaking to Real Business at the First Women Awards in London, she explains what her number one tip for women in business is.

She says: “Just do it – believe in yourself and believe in what you want to achieve. You can achieve anything if you set your mind to it.” 

One of the key themes of the First Women Awards was confidence – women need to believe in themselves in order to become more successful and present in business.

Sherry Coutu agrees – and says that it’s all about trying: “You try things, and it works. Have a support network of people around you – both men and women – and you can achieve phenomenal things. It’s as simple as that. 

“Tonight, many women have been recognised for amazing achievements. If they hadn’t tried, if they hadn’t dared, and if they hadn’t been brave, they wouldn’t be where they are now.”
