Are you a female founder, leader, or entrepreneur of an SME in Oxfordshire? Come network at this ‘gathering’ of like-minded business women.

OxLEP Business are please to be offering a second Women in Business Networking event. After the success of our last event we hope to continue bringing together Oxfordshire’s female business founders, leaders, and managers of SMEs.

We are looking to create a supportive network where you can be yourself and have meaningful discussions with fellow women in business within Oxfordshire, as well as share experiences.

• A place that you can build trusted relationships with like-minded women

• Opportunity to increase your business knowledge

• To take part in discussion topics

• To raise awareness of your business and personal brand

The UK is often described as the start-up capital of Europe, but sadly not when it comes to women. Whilst the last decade has seen a sharp increase in female self-employment, the number of women starting, and scaling businesses remains much lower than that of men (only 1 in 3 UK entrepreneurs is female). So, what are the issues? Well, they can vary depending on the stage or intention of the business, but repeatedly we hear access to funding and networks, primary care responsibilities, sectors and skills.

To celebrate our amazing local female talent, wonderful business relationships forged to date, and the evident appetite for female empowerment across the region, OxLEP is inviting existing and new female clients to come together for a morning of networking and insightful conversation.

Although networking and making valuable connections is a priority, there will also be the opportunity to hear from guest speakers on subjects affecting female entrepreneurship, as well as to speak to the OxLEP Business team about available support.

Who is this event for?

This second ‘in-person’ event is for female business founders, leaders, and managers of SMEs in and around the Oxfordshire area. Perhaps you’re an alumni of eScalate’s Women in Business Network and Support, or maybe you have received support from the wider OxLEP Growth Hub. However you have engaged with us, this event provides the perfect opportunity to reconnect with peers, meet new women entrepreneurs, and listen to inspiring guest speakers, all in a lively and friendly environment.

NB: Whilst priority will be given to existing OxLEP clients; this event is also open to women business leaders that may not yet have sought support from OxLEP.
