The 19th November marks the international ‘WED’ or ‘Womens Entrepreneurship Day’.  CELEBRATING, EMPOWERING, and SUPPORTING women in business.

BY CHRIS THORNE

Although the social media campaign for ‘WED’ is due to take place on the 30th November, the team at TEN wanted to be sure to celebrate this important date in the entrepreneurial calender, and give our female members out there a positive message for the weekend.

Entrepreneurship is a rapidly growing trend in the modern world, with digital technology and the power of the internet making it easier and easier for budding entrepreneurs to create a business and compete on the world stage from the comfort of their own living room.  However, creating your own business is not without certain difficulties, and as with any profession can provide additonal challenges for women, especially in market sectors that are male dominated, and sadly the subject of gender equality is still an area that sometimes leaves much to be desired.

Since our beginnings the team at TEN are fortunate to have collaborated and worked with some incredible entrepreneurs, from all walks of life, and we’ve had a pretty balanced mix of male and females.

We are proud to show our support for WED and hope to see more and more women starting the incredible process of becoming an entrepreneur.  We also plan to host an evening event in the near future geared towards our female members, and look forward to featuring more and more articles from you on our fantastic platform.

If you would like to find out how you become a feature entrepreneur please contact us, and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

Happy WED day everyone.
