Holly Jones, Hub Manager at Focus Newtown Enterprise Hub said:

“This event has been a long time coming and something we are very excited to share with everyone. We have an incredible line-up of inspirational and successful businesswomen to join us as we celebrate and encourage women in business. We’ll be talking about everything from marketing through to access to funding – something which has been noted as one of the biggest barriers women face in business.”

Designed to support women in the local community who are looking for inspiration, want to connect with other women and build relationships with like-minded people, this conference is fully funded and open to those in Powys, Ceredigion and Mid Wales. In partnership with BeTheSpark, we will bring together exceptional entrepreneurs, leading business minds and dynamic service providers to connect, learn and share best practice.

“I’m thrilled to be part of such a fantastic event to celebrate entrepreneurship amongst women in Wales. As a business owner myself, I know how difficult it can be to take that first step. I’m looking forward to speaking alongside the other four amazing women, and I’m so glad that despite Covid-19 restrictions we’re still able to host this event virtually and reach more women,” commented Alana Spencer, owner of Ridiculously Rich by Alana.
