University of East London launches project to promote women in business
Entrepreneurial women are being urged to sign up for a £1.5million project aimed at globalising their businesses.
The University of East London (UEL) is organising the scheme to coincide with International Women’s Day, which will be marked on Friday.
The Make it Global project will provide women-led businesses in Tower Hamlets with access to international networks and entrepreneurship experts, as well as helping them start trading on the global marketplace.
UEL vice chancellor Selena Bolingbroke said: “The world is a small place when it comes to business, so it is time for female entrepreneurs in Tower Hamlets to start thinking global.
“By working with our network of specialist partners and business contacts, we look forward to seeing the borough’s businesswomen becoming businesswomen of the world.”
