This Female Entrepreneurs Supper Club is exclusively for women that are about to start or have just started their business and since the last supper club the stats haven't changed - according to the UK Government, if women set up businesses at the same rate as men, the UK would have an additional one million entrepreneurs.
Even from just my own short journey of creating the plant-based food business 'V-Curious' - www.v-curious.com -I know that things can be incredibly difficult, and sometimes a little isolating especially if you're working alone like so many of us do. However I believe that we are stronger together and personally I've always benefited meeting with other female entrepreneurs because there seems to be a openness to share ideas and inspirations and a desire to help each other succeed. I think that if more women are to set up in business then creating supportive and inspiring spaces like this is vital.
Here's the Mexican feast of a menu...
- Pico de gallo
- Black bean chilli
- Salsa verde
- Chipotle salsa
- Esquites - a mexican street food sweetcorn dish
- Cashew queso blanco
- Sour cream (made from tofu but don't be scared!)
And to finish off...A Chilli-Chocolatey surprise for dessert
Here's a peak at a Mexican theme wedding I catered for previously - http://fatgayvegan.com/2016/01/07/vegan-wedding/
Everything in this meal is plant-based. No animal products - we're therefore dairy free, egg free and meat free. Perfect for vegans and vegetarians. Let us know if you have an allergy and we'll do our best to work it out. Please note we own two cats that are kept out of the dining are but are present in the house.
This is a BYO event - there are plenty of places nearby to buy beers and wines. etc.
The benefits of meeting with other female entrepreneurs can be the sharing of contacts, networks, potential customers etc but what I really love and what I've gained from most is the sharing of experiences about what's worked and what hasn't - more often than not it's been the "what's not worked" that has created the most interesting conversations.
I'm personally not a "networking" fan - walking into a room, armed with my business cards fills me with dread. Over food however and sitting with other female entrepreneurs puts a different spin on things. So, this Supper Club is bringing together women who are out there, working to start and/or grow their business. It's a judgement free, opportunity to share your ideas, inspirations, problems and expand your professional network - all while meeting like-minded entrepreneurs over my truly delicious food.
