Have you been inspired or impacted by Covid19 to embark on your female founder journey? SheGenerate is a new pilot from AwakenHub that might be just what the doctor ordered.
Maybe you have already taken the plunge but following lockdown need some help in getting off the ground. Or do you have a niggling side hustle or idea that desperately wants to come out.
Their first intake will include up to 35 women from across Ireland – North and South.
- 6 x 2hr tailored and interactive workshops (roughly 3-4 weeks apart);
- Access to AwakenHub’s private female founder Slack group as a safe place to interact with and learn from each other as well as a broader community of women founders and Big Sisters (handpicked company builders, innovators, investors and entrepreneurs) offering informal advice & guidance (through to June 2022);
- Free attendance to AwakenHub regular community events (through to June 2022);
- Advice and signposting for next steps.
- Their criteria are pretty straight forward. They don’t want to be too prescriptive in case they miss out on a real beauty newbie founder but you must be keen to get cracking.
- Any very early-stage woman founder / prospective founder on the Island of Ireland is welcome to apply. If you are a member of the Irish diaspora and want to move back home (soon) then you can apply too.
- You don’t have to be ‘a thing’ already – maybe you are on the cusp of founder life, have an idea niggling away at you, want to be your own boss and just need a little bit of support to help you take the plunge. But you should be serious about starting a new business and hope to get trading within 12 months.
- Any background or sector.
- Social enterprises are definitely included in the mix.
- And they would jump for joy if they got women from every county on the island of Ireland.
