Tell us a bit more about Academy for Women Entrepreneurs
Academy for Women Entrepreneurs was established in 2019by myself and my business partner, James Vanderzee. Having seen what was on offer to women business owners, we wanted to provide time efficient, directly applicable, and affordable training solutions to solopreneurs and micro-business founders. Academy for Women Entrepreneurs is a platform that really places community at its core, with support and collaboration from all members. The platform, which allows individuals to join as members on either a free or paid for basis, is all about empowering women and providing the knowledge and specific skill set needed to be successful in business. From one-to-one coaching, group coaching and online courses, we have created a coherent set of resources to enable success for women-led businesses.
And how did you come to set this up?
