GO4IT in the UK

 

The GO4IT programme ran in the UK from March 15- June 15 supporting more than 28 women from all sectors and ages.

10 fempreneurs took part in the Mentoring Circle™ programme . They weredivided into two Mentoring Circle™ groups, which allowed for more time to focus on the individual’s needs during the meetings as well as being more flexible to fit participants’busy schedules. 

The first group was made up of 4 fempreneurs who met a total of 4 times between mid March and mid May. The second group had 6 fempreneurs who had 4 meetings between the end of April and mid June. 

2 more fempreneurs were given a one-to-one training with the Mentoring Circle™ facilitator to accommodate individual needs and time constrains.

 

The Mentoring Circles™ were supplemented by two workshops to help female business owners develop some of their business skills. The half day workshop on Social Media and the full day workshop on Business Strategyattracted another 18 women to the programme. 

 

The overall evaluation of both the Mentoring Circles™ as well as the workshops was very positive. Fempreneurs in the programme appreciated the opportunity to connect with other like-minded women and support each other in their entrepreneurship journey.
