Women would-be entrepreneurs targeted at University event

A Women in Enterprise event on campus this week (Tuesday, October 29) is aiming to attract female students and staff who may be considering starting a business.

A few places are still available at the event, which is organised by the Careers Service and supported by the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust, Enterprise North East Trust and the Scottish Institute for Enterprise, and will take place in the Craig Suite of the Sir Duncan Rice Library, Bedford Road from 5pm to 7.30pm.

The session is open to everyone,  but has been specifically designed to give female undergraduates, postgraduates and members of staff the opportunity to find out more about starting a business and some of the support available to take their own ideas forward.
