Our Aim

Going for Growth is designed to support women who are serious about growing their businesses and are the owner manager of a business which has been trading for at least two years. At Going for Growth, we believe that entrepreneurs learn best from each other. Accordingly, the initiative is based on interactive roundtable sessions that are facilitated, not by consultants, academics or professional trainers, but by successful entrepreneurs. If you would like to find out more about the initiative or have any questions about Going for Growth please feel free to contact us at info@goingforgrowth.com You may also wish to download the brochure for more information.

Our Lead Entrepreneurs

The Going for Growth Lead Entrepreneurs have the practical knowledge that comes from first-hand experience of owning and managing a business that has achieved considerable growth. One of the strengths of the Going for Growth programme is the high quality of the Lead Entrepreneurs, all of whom give their time on a voluntary basis to the programme. To learn more about the Lead Entrepreneurs click here. To them and to our sponsors we are most grateful as Going for Growth simply could not happen without them.
