EMPOWER START PROGRAMME
EMPOWER, the women’s entrepreneurship programme, which is run by the GMIT iHubs, is now accepting applications for the next EMPOWER START programme. The EMPOWER Programme is free to participants and aims to fast track female-led businesses in the West and North West of Ireland.
The START programme is designed to help early stage female founders validate their business idea, define a business model, confidently communicate, and clearly articulate their business proposition and develop a support network with liked minded business women. Weekly training sessions cover topics including strategy, marketing research, marketing, networking, story-telling and pitching. Throughout the programme participants receive individual mentoring sessions. Guest speakers join the group to talk on a specific topic or to share the story of their business journey. These sessions are intended to inform and inspire the participants and offer them a chance to ask specific questions.
The next EMPOWER START programme will run from November 2021 to February 2022. The programme is delivered on a Wednesday, once per week. The programme is planned to be delivered in a hybrid of online and in-person sessions.
