The Women in Business Intercounty Showcase and Networking Event held recently in Middleton Park House, Co. Westmeath attracted large numbers of female entrepreneurs from the Midlands.

The event featured two expert speakers in the field of entrepreneurship: Paula Fitzsimons (MD Fitzsimons Consulting & National Director of Going for Growth) and Nicola Byrne (CEO & founder of 11890 & Stenics Media) and provided an excellent opportunity for women in business in Longford, Westmeath & Leitrim and other surrounding counties to display and showcase their businesses as well as engage in a variety of networking opportunities.

The event marked the close of the second phase of Longford Women’s Link’s Female Entrepreneurship Mentoring Programme which matched established female entrepreneurs (mentors) from Longford, Westmeath and Leitrim with entrepreneurs who were in the early stages of business development, thereby enabling them to receive mentor support.
