Businesswomen to inspire female start-ups
The government is to recruit 1,000 female entrepreneurs to help and inspire more women to set up their own business, it was announced today.
Industry and regions minister Margaret Hodge said the army of businesswomen will form a national network and work with the newly created Task Force for Women's Enterprise.
Key areas on which the network will focus include working with women in their communities, through education and in particular industries to inspire them to start-up with specific concentration on younger women and those who have just had children.
