Funded growth support for Lancashire Female Business Owners
Businesswomen in Lancashire in need of help to grow their company are being urged to apply for a place on an Autumn course to give them new skills.
RoleUK will be holding the Women Aiming Higher programme and have 15 fully funded places available on the course, which normally costs £500.The two day course will run on September 23 and October 12.
More than one million businesses in the UK are owned by women, creating a combined total of £75 billion economic output. Taking the UK as a whole, 20% of businesses are female owned and they create 16% of total economic output. The last 5 years have seen a 25% increase in the number of women setting up in business.However, according to RoleUK, women are more likely to operate businesses from home, on a part time basis and in lower order services, making them more likely to have limited growth trajectories, but these solid small businesses do have great potential.
Lancashire is a great place to start and grow a business and RoleUK knows just how successful female entrepreneurs can be with the right support and guidance.The female specific growth programme combines leadership skills, growth visioning and planning and one to one mentoring from some of the UK’s most inspiring leaders. This programme will bring together 20 of Lancashire’s aspiring female business owners and equip them with the confidence, skills and networks to grow their business turnover and profit and employ at least 3 new employees. If you would like to be considered for one of these exclusive places please contact firstname.lastname@example.org asap.
