Going for Growth - An invitation to ambitious women entrepreneurs
Are you facing challenges in growing your business? Would you benefit from peer support and the insights and experiences of successful women entrepreneurs? Then the Going for Growth initiative could be just right for you.
A call is now being issued to ambitious women entrepreneurs who would like to be considered for participation in the 8th Cycle of the Going for Growth initiative. The emphasis will be on small numbers of committed participants who have a clear aspiration for growth, who value this opportunity, and who will commit to attending all the regular meetings.
Going for Growth is open to women entrepreneurs, across all sectors, whose main business is located in the Republic of Ireland. Whatever the size of the business at present, the application will be considered if a strong growth ambition can be demonstrated.
To be considered suitable for participation, the entrepreneur should already be the owner manager of a business of which she is a major shareholder and key influencer. Suitable applicants need to demonstrate significant aspiration for growth and should be working full time on the business. It is expected that the business will have been trading for at least two years. Only in exceptional cases will a business at an earlier stage be considered. Applications from those who have been trading for a shorter period must demonstrate that the product/service is highly innovative in nature, has a longer development cycle than the norm and has exceptional growth potential.
Interested entrepreneurs should register on the website www.goingforgrowth.com and an application form will be sent out immediately. The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Wednesday, 25 November 2015.
