Our topics

Our mentoring programme was developed specifically for female-led businesses in the creative industries. It teaches know-how about growth strategies, how to deal with risk and how to overcome barriers. Best practice examples on topics such as "entrepreneurship after maternity leave", "models for sharing the management", "hedging strategies" and many more are shown.
