Lead Entrepreneurs

The Lead Entrepreneurs are not, and cannot be, experts in every area of business but they have first hand experience of facing the challenges of growing a business. They all agree that if such support were to have been available to them when they were growing their business, they would have found it most beneficial. Each of these busy and successful woman give their time to the initiative in a completely voluntary capacity.
