Her Biz: What’s it about?

To increase entrepreneurship locally, we are offering women in East Sussex & Kent a fantastic opportunity to come together to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence they’ll need to launch a successful business.

This inspiring programme has been specifically created to help and encourage women to set up new businesses. From refining your business idea to marketing and managing your finances, we can help you to prepare for a successful launch.

That's why we also include an optional competition to give you the chance to win £500 towards start-up costs. You will just need to submit a business plan to enter, and it's open to all those selected to participate.

Given the current need for social distancing, the programme will be delivered directly through your screens, as you join our experienced Start-Up Coaches for a series of 4 x 2 hour sessions hosted via Zoom.

2019 saw five successful rounds of the Her Biz programme across East Sussex and Kent, each one over-subscribed, so we urge you to apply now to avoid disappointment!
