Business is Great – Women in Enterprise

The proportion of small and medium-sized companies run by women is increasing.  Yet there is greater potential still: there are more women with great entrepreneurial ideas who need the support to help their businesses succeed. If women set up businesses at the same rate as men, the UK would have an additional one million entrepreneurs.

On the Business is Great – Women in Enterprise website you will learn of the places, organisations and networks, as well as the sources of government advice and resources, that can help you develop your business.
