Cornish female entrepreneurs made the most of the opportunity to get involved with Facebook’s annual #SheMeansBusiness campaign during the networking launch event in Falmouth on International Women’s Day.
Oh So founder Katherine George has been selected by Facebook to head up #SheMeansBusiness in Cornwall. The Female Founder Meet-up at The Falmouth Hotel marked the launch of the campaign, which will see Katherine provide free Facebook and Instagram training to female founders across Cornwall.
The event saw female entrepreneurs from across the county and from a variety of sectors, from accountancy to property, creative design to marketing, all come together to exchange stories, make connections and discover more about this year’s #SheMeansBusiness campaign.
Katherine said: “As one of just 24 Facebook-accredited mentors in the country, I feel honoured to be able to give something back to the business community in Cornwall and help other female start-ups succeed by sharing my knowledge.
“This event attracted businesswomen from a wide range of industries which sparked lots of interesting conversations and it was great to see so many people benefiting from just this one networking morning. I already can’t wait to host the next one!”
Any female entrepreneurs who were unable to make the launch event can keep up to date with future events by signing up to our #SheMeansBusiness mailing list.
