National Women’s Enterprise Day 2014 – Southside Partnership DLR

Last night at the 5th annual celebration of women in business, I got the chance to meet and speak to an inspirational group of women who have been starting and developing businesses since 1998, assisted by Southside Partnership DLR.

The lack of female entrepreneurs in Ireland is not a “women’s” problem, to be solved for the benefit of women and to address issues of equality. It is a national problem that affects the economic growth and development of our country.

In order to achieve the economic expansion we seek, we need to unlock a vital source of growth that can power our economies in decades to come. This vital source of growth is women.
