Free support and inspiration for women who run their own business

Do you have an ambition to run your own business? Maybe you've already set up a business and you're looking for ideas and support.

Our Female Entrepreneurs Network runs regular free events for female business owners. Based in Portsmouth, the UK's most entrepreneurial city 2020 (Instant Offices), we'll help you connect with other entrepreneurs across the south and learn from other business owners.

When you join the network you’ll be able to:

  • Join our informal ‘Meet and Mingle’ networking events
  • Attend our ‘Inspire and Inform’ guest speaker events
  • Connect with other female entrepreneurs through our Facebook group

Normally our events are held face-to-face in child-friendly locations, so if you have little ones they can be happy whilst you network.

At the moment this isn’t possible, so we’re holding an online networking event on the 4th Wednesday of each month, from 10.00am to 11.30am.

To be part of a group of strong, intelligent, admirable, businesswomen, where we all support and encourage each other, is wonderful.

The Female Entrepreneurs Network in Portsmouth is awesome because everyone is so willing to help and mentor anyone that is new to the world. I know I always have a safe space to ask questions without being judged.
