It is only by delivering needs-based, gender specific business support that women will be able to fulfil their aspirations and unlock their full economic potential.
Established in 2011, Women’s Enterprise Scotland (WES) is a research-led not for profit Community Interest Company which champions women-led and women-owned businesses. WES advocates the need for gender specific support in enterprise as the way to unlocking women’s economic potential, enabling innovation and productivity to thrive.
In 2020, WES launched the first freely accessible digital platform of its kind which supports women as they start and grow their own businesses. The Women’s Business Centre provides needs based, gender specific support to help women bring their commercial ideas to life and to flourish as business owners.
STV and Women’s Enterprise Scotland come together to build back a better economy in Scotland. With women-owned businesses in the minority, STV and WES are focused on supporting women with resources, training, and insights to help boost their business aspirations and to enable them to play a leading role in the Scottish economy.
STV is providing training and support to the Women’s Enterprise Ambassador Programme that brings together over 50 female entrepreneurs to provide visible, relatable role models for women who are considering starting a business or are growing an existing one.
