11.9% of the male adult population is engaged with entrepreneurial activity compared to only 5.6% of women. If female entrepreneurial activity matched the same level as male’s the UK economy could be boosted by £180bn by 2025. But with barriers such as discrimination, lack of appropriate business support, and perceived lack of access to finance, starting a business as a woman can be hard. That is why a gender focused approach to delivery support is key to unlock full individual and economic potential.
With that in mind Wrexham Enterprise Hub and Lloyds Banking Group are proud to deliver a carefully curated afternoon of practical advice and motivational talks to help women start and grow their businesses. The informal gathering will give you opportunity to speak to industry experts from a wide variety of support agencies to discuss anything from finance to support for your Social Businesses. There’s also an exclusive ‘Digital Zone’ where you can ensure that your business is fully utilising all the digital tools at its disposal! Hear from other entrepreneurs and gain some practical tips to help overcome any challenges you may be facing in your business.
As you can imagine there will be plenty of opportunities to network and build relationships with other local businesses over food and drinks.
Spaces are limited so we recommended booking early to avoid missing out!
