Women talking outside in the sunshine.

Join us to network and grow!

Free support and inspiration for women who run their own business or those who would like to

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

The Female Entrepreneurs Network is all about celebrating and supporting women founders and freelancers across the South Coast!

Based in Portsmouth, the UK's most entrepreneurial city in 2020 (Instant Offices), we'll help you connect with other entrepreneurs across the South and learn from other business owners.

Whether you're a freelancer, a small business owner, or have a business idea you want help to get off the ground, join our events to hear from our guest speakers on a variety of business-related topics and connect with other businesswomen through some informal networking! The networking is free to access and a chance to seek support and advice from our inclusive community.

Don't forget to join our online community on Facebook to get support and network between events

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.
