Oh So Social founder Katherine George has been chosen by Facebook as a social media mentor and trainer for its #SheMeansBusiness campaign, in partnership with Enterprise Nation.
As one of just 24 mentors selected in the UK, Katherine is instrumental in delivering free Instagram and Facebook training to female founders of start-up businesses across Cornwall and Devon – a valuable opportunity for female entrepreneurs in both counties.
#SheMeansBusiness was launched in 2017 to celebrate female entrepreneurs and to facilitate Facebook and Instagram training to female entrepreneurs across the UK. Last year, the campaign provided over 10,000 female founders with social media training. It is a space for entrepreneurial women to make valuable connections, share advice and move forward, together.
To launch the campaign and to celebrate International Women’s Day, we hosted a female founder meet-up on Thursday 8th March at The Falmouth Hotel. This was a fun and friendly networking event where female start-up business owners could get their social media questions answered, meet other start-ups and hear their stories.
It was a great opportunity for all to make valuable contacts as well as discover more about this year’s #SheMeansBusiness campaign. We welcomed female entrepreneurs from across Cornwall and from a variety of sectors, from accountancy to property, creative design to marketing, and plenty more.
