Help for women to be en­trepreneurs

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - RECRUITMENT & BUSINESS -

WOMEN have shown that they are of­ten the best at busi­ness. The rare breeds cen­tre in Wood­church was the venue on Satur­day for Girls On Top Day 2007, a show­case event for the Rom­ney En­ter­prise Gate­way’s (REG) Go Ahead project. The project aims to en­cour­age and help women who are think­ing of work­ing for them­selves. So far more than a dozen women-led busi­nesses have been set up as a re­sult of the project. REG is now set­ting up a new net­work for busi­ness­women called Path­ways. REG di­rec­tor Ja­son Martin said: “We knew that the Go Ahead project was go­ing to be a chal­lenge, but we didn’t re­alise quite how much fun it was also go­ing to be. “Run­ning days like the Girls on Top day have demon­strated to the area’s women that they too have the abil­ity to run their own busi­nesses. “See­ing the smil­ing faces, the buzz of women net­work­ing with one an­other and the pos­i­tive feed­back has been enor­mously re­ward­ing.”
