2020 marks the 14th year of the National Women’s Enterprise Day. This year, due to continuing Covid-19 restrictions there will be a nationwide online event with participation from Local Enterprise Offices across the country.
The messaging for 2020 will focus on resilience, self-care, innovation and opportunity to feature under ‘Stronger Together’ message.
Entrepreneurs that will be sharing their insights and journeys include Olympian-turned-company founder Derval O’ Rourke, Sonia Deasy of the Irish global skincare brand, Pestle & Mortar, Pamela Laird of Moxi Loves who was a finalist on BBC’s The Apprentice and Áine Kerr, the co-founder of Kinzen and RTÉ broadcaster, who is also the M.C. for the day.
All events in the programme are free of charge and include workshops with experts, panel discussions, a virtual marketplace and facilitated networking to connect more entrepreneurs with each other.
An Tánaiste, who will be delivering the opening address and has said:
“The ‘Stronger Together’ message for National Women’s Enterprise Day has never been more important. I look forward to addressing this year’s event and hearing from inspiring female business leaders on how they have managed the past few months, which have been extremely difficult for all business owners and their staff. The Government is determined to help more women pursue entrepreneurship as a career and I’m encouraged to see such a significant increase – 58%, taking up the training programmes that are available. Training and mentorship can make a huge difference to any entrepreneur starting out, on what can often be a lonely journey, and I encourage all women considering setting up their own business to contact their Local Enterprise Office to see how they can help you.”
Join host, Áine Kerr, and entrepreneurs from across the country for a day of education, inspiration and motivation!
