Empower Hour - Women on The Rise

Female Founders & Business Leaders Mix & Mingle - Celebrating Women in March

Women's History Month | International Women's Day | Mother's Day

This month we are bringing together a diverse group of individuals to continue to celebrate and support women, young future entrepreneurs and the startup/ business community. Meet and connect other ambitious founders and business leaders from a variety of industries at an event aimed at connecting you to the right people. Join us and expand your network, to not only gain valuable contacts and potential clients, but also receive support and encouragement from those in our community who understand the challenges of starting and growing a business.

In addition to networking, you'll also have the opportunity to learn from successful female leaders who have already achieved great success in their respective fields. You'll gain insights into their journeys, learn about the challenges they faced, and discover strategies for success that you can apply to your own startup.

Our female-themed event also provides a platform for you to showcase your own business and gain exposure for your brand. You'll have the chance to pitch your ideas and products to other attendees, receive feedback, and potentially even gain new customers. This event is open to everyone, regardless of gender, and is designed to highlight the importance of empowering and investing in female-led businesses and the next generation of leaders.

Co-hosting this event with organisations, startups & individuals that are dedicated to supporting women and young people in their careers & businesses.
