Developing Entrepreneurial Women

The Developing Entrepreneurial Women Programme is a fully-funded series of masterclasses and events delivered by the University of South Wales in partnership with NatWest Cymru.

This programme has been designed for women who are at the early stages of taking action on their freelance or business start-up idea.

To find out more about the September 2023-2024 session, please contact Stiwdio.

The Developing Entrepreneurial Women Programme has supported many female founders on their start-up journey. From gaining financial and legal know-how, to developing a marketing strategy, the women on our programme have not only received technical knowledge, they have also benefited from a supportive community of female founders. Here we have showcased some of the thriving business ventures, and the inspiring women behind them.

Women have fundamentally different experiences to men in business. Research shows that women who start and grow a business face more barriers around access to finance, disproportionate caring responsibilities, and different levels of access to networks.

Join host Gemma Casey as she brings you the stories of brilliant female founders of Welsh businesses who have faced all of these challenges - and more. Inspiring Women Wales tells stories you can relate to, stories to inspire you and give you the confidence to move forward with your business dreams. Listen on Apple or Spotify - and don't forget to subscribe!
