National Women’s Enterprise Day aims to inspire, motivate and support women across the country in running their own business.
National Women’s Enterprise Day strives to encourage even more women to set up their own businesses and to increase national recognition of the essential role played by Ireland’s female entrepreneurs. The event consists of a variety of developmental support actions, including inspiring speakers, information provision, exhibition of state supports for enterprise, facilitated business networking and one to one business mentoring.
Successful businesswomen shared their experiences with start-up companies and fledgling businesses at this two day event. The benefit for the entrepreneurs attending is that they can access everything they need to know about setting up a business or expanding a business over two days. Participants come away from the event inspired, informed and motivated to fully exploit their potential as entrepreneurs.
National Women's Enterprise Day 2013 took place most recently on 16 & 17th October 2013 at Portlaoise Heritage Hotel, Portlaoise, Co Laois.
This event, hosted by the County & City Enterprise Boards, is co-financed by the European Social Fund with support from the Department of Justice and Equality, through the Equality for Women initiative.
