Women in Business

Women in Business


Boosting Women in Business provides intensive support to boost the confidence and self-esteem of women across Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire.

Through a series of workshops and one to one mentoring, we offer a safe and supportive environment where women can learn to understand the value of their skill sets, and how these can translate into running their own business.
Taking part in Boosting Women in Business will inspire ideas and fully support the transition to self-employment.

This project is funded by the NatWest Skills & Opportunities Fund.
In order to access a free place on Boosting Women you must meet the below criteria.
• Must not currently be registered as self-employed.
• Staffordshire resident.
• Must be willing to commit to the full programme of activities to take place over an initial three-month period.


Workshop one, INSPIRE (10:00-14:30) Discovering your true skillset and abilities
Workshop two, INITIATE (10:00-14:30) How to start a business
Workshop three, ENGAGE (10:00-14:30) Marketing, selling and simple finance


On completion of workshops & mentoring we will invite you to submit a simple business plan to be in with the chance of winning up to £500 towards start-up costs associated with your business. In order to take part in this
competition, you must provide evidence that the business has been registered. The project can offer one to one support to guide you through this process.


Ongoing start-up support will be provided by Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce.
