Women’s Enterprise Day
Enterprise Insight, the non–profit organisation that fosters young entrepreneurial talent, has urged budding female entrepreneurs to take part in this year’s Women’s Enterprise Day so they can get the help they need to turn their business ideas into reality.
Women’s Enterprise Day will take place on 19th November and is a national event celebrating female entrepreneurship and business success. The day will see business support organisations across the UK provide seminars and workshops offering advice to women in business.
Alex Ritchie, women’s enterprise campaigner for Enterprise Insight’s Make Your Mark campaign said.
“Women’s Enterprise Day will empower more women to make their ideas a reality by highlighting the inspirational achievements of the UK’s many successful entrepreneurs and by giving them the information they need to get started,â?
“This year we’re encouraging women to aim high and think big when setting up in business or growing existing ventures,â? she added. “From ideas yet to be launched to kitchen table businesses, we’d like them all to consider their growth potential and, who knows, some may even end up as global empires.â?
Women’s Enterprise Day is part of Enterprise Week (17–23 November), run by Enterprise Insight, a non–profit organisation founded by the British Chambers Of Commerce, the Confederation of British Industry, the Federation of Small Businesses and supported by the Small Business Service.
Enterprise Week will include UK–wide activities and events aimed at inspiring people under 30 to turn their business ideas into reality.
According to Enterprise Insight, more than one million women are now self–employed in the UK and women–owned businesses already contribute £60 billion to the UK economy.
