The ‘Women’s Start Up Project’ will be run by Young Enterprise, the UK’s largest enterprise education charity, and will be focused on giving students the skills to start up their own business in tourism, hospitality and creative industries sectors. 

Grant said: Our economy needs to see more women setting up and running their own businesses. The tourism and creative industries make a massive contribution to the country and women play major roles in these sectors. So it’s fantastic that this scheme will encourage young women taking their first steps in these industries to turn their business dreams into reality.

Running your own business can be hugely rewarding, offering greater flexibility and financial independence. I am sure the Womens Start Up Project will be a great success.

Michael Mercieca, chief executive of Young Enterprise said: The UK needs to empower more women to get into business. We see plenty of dynamic young women excelling on our school programmes and were delighted to be launching this project with the Government to further this.

The announcement was made ahead of International Women’s Day on 8 March.

More powerful women will hit the stage at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square on June 12, 2014 for the First Women Awards 2014.
