National Women's Enterprise Day

Last week it was 'Day of the Girl' and today, Wednesday October 19 is National Women's Enterprise Day.

The 10th Annual National Women’s Enterprise Day (#NWED) is organised by the Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) to encourage more women in Ireland to start a business.

The LEOs, in partnership with local authorities, provide a range of supports for start-ups and growing businesses. 20% more female entrepreneurs accessed supports through LEOs in 2015 compared with the year before.

The Border Region's event is in the Radisson Farnham Estate, Cavan

The theme this year is “road to success” and the LEOs have enlisted the help of eight Regional Ambassadors to share their own road to success stories at events that day.
