Enterprise Tuesday – Realisation: The Journey from Zero

18:30 - 20:00

Inspirational stories from four female founders

With guest panellists Emma Sinclair MBE, Co-Founder of EnterpriseAlumni; Addie Pinkster, CEO of Adelpha Group; Aleksandra Pedraszewska, Co-founder & COO of VividQ; and Joanne Smith, Chair of SME Council at the Confederation of British Industry

Numerous pieces of research show the link between female leaders and stronger financial performance, greater employee productivity and collaborative ways of working. Yet, in the UK, only 25% of businesses have a female founder and only 11% are all-female led. We are missing out on an opportunity to build bigger, better businesses and ultimately more growth for the economy. This session will focus on the how. We will explore the lifecycle challenges from startup to scale-up to exit and how this interacts with the entrepreneur’s personal journey. COVID-19 has shone a light on the importance of agility and being able to pivot and repurpose. We will pick up on how entrepreneurs have navigated this pandemic as well as the importance of culture, business resilience and the role of governance.



Get Started with your Social Enterprise

09:30 - 13:00

Join for a half-day online practical workshop to get started on plans for your own social enterprise – a new business with social impact at its core.

In a small group of budding entrepreneurs, we’ll teach you some basic concepts in business planning, finance and legal structures: the toolkit you need to get your own social enterprise off the ground.

You’ll leave the workshop with knowledge and resources you can use straight away, as you take your first steps towards building your new business.
