Are you a female business owner or a woman wanting to start a business but have barriers to overcome?
MNC is thrilled to be once again working with the Accelerating Women’s Enterprise project to bring much-needed, FULLY-funded business training to our community and beyond.
There is a myriad of courses to choose from to build your business skills, and MNC Co-Director Sara Guiel will be leading the experienced team who are delivering the training across six months. The Accelerating Women’s Enterprise Programme covers a wide range of topics to help you on your business journey. Some are basic skills to help you navigate life as a business start-up. Some are more specific to help you build your business. There are also special modules for women who want to run a social enterprise. Some modules are a single session, others will be split across two separate sessions to help you practise and embed your new knowledge and skills. You choose the modules you think will be best to build your business skills. The programme will be delivered on Zoom, and each session will be 3 hours long starting from September until April.
