The Going for Growth Suite of Initiatives

Building on this fertile ground, we want to introduce the possibility of an entrepreneurial career to particular groups of women that may not have considered it previously and where we believe lies untapped entrepreneurial potential……women in senior corporate positions, those with doctoral and post-doctoral academic qualifications, professional women, women seeking a change in their life, among others.

These women may not have considered the possibility of an entrepreneurial career previously, of if they have, may not have taken any concrete steps towards making their aspiration or latent idea a reality.

We want to open their minds to what might be possible and, if they wish, to support them, so that they may become actively committed to developing their idea into a scalable, innovative business, which is focused on export markets.
