For female entrepreneurs starting out in business and looking to gain a crucial foothold in a highly competitive environment, the too often undervalued art of networking could be your new best friend.
Networking events may conjure up images of awkward small talk and dog-eared business cards, but female entrepreneurs are increasingly adopting new and innovative ways to connect. Indeed, they can get the conversation started immediately thanks to entrepreneur networks typically boasting strong web presences – and here are a few standouts:
Driven Woman invites you to ‘join the movement of women doers and find your drive’. Launched in 2013, it has grown hugely and now encompasses monthly workshops all over Europe.
In a similar vein to Driven Woman’s online community, the Female Founders Forum is all about mentorship, but with a major difference. It brings together ‘some of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs’, from the head of Google for Startups UK, Marta Krupinska, to Laura Tenison MBE, founder of Jojo Maman Bebe.
Thinking a bit bigger? Then Women Entrepreneurs Grow Global is dedicated to introducing female business people to opportunities worldwide and facilitating them.
The perfect entrepreneurial support network is waiting for you – all you have to do is reach out, start the conversation, and reap the benefits.
