Women’s Enterprise Scotland, close connections of The Women’s Organisation, are holding their international conference in Glasgow this May.
Women’s Enterprise Scotland ‘works to create an entrepreneurial environment where women-led businesses can flourish and grow’, much like The Women’s Organisation. They say; ‘If the number of women-led businesses increased to equal those of men, our national bank balance would be at least 5% better off. That’s equivalent to a £7.6 billion boost to the economy, minimum.’
Much like The Women’s Organisation, Women’s Enterprise Scotland supports and inspires women to start their own businesses and ventures, and this May they are holding an international conference to continuing doing just that…
On the 12th and 13th May at the Glasgow Caledonian University WES will introduce Shifting Gears: Women’s Enterprise Moving On. This is an international conference, the first of its kind in Scotland and is designed to build on the global leading Women’s Enterprise framework that is established in Scotland.
‘This international event is aimed at all those supporting small and medium sized businesses, but in particular, policy makers, enterprise support practitioners and academics and researchers. Exchanging information and views on current approaches whilst collaborating on the next gear change for women’s enterprise support delivery in Scotland.’
The conference has a fantastic line-up of speakers and events, and will explore the growth trend in female self-employment and small/medium business formation, particularly in non-traditional and innovative sectors. They will be identifying and examining the strategies and resources needed to support sustainable growth and unlock the significant potential of women’s enterprise to contribute to the Scottish economy.
