The support system for female-led businesses is expanding alongside the number of these businesses. To encourage and educate women entrepreneurs on growing their enterprises, 3R Media will host the third installation of the Minding Her Business series at Temuhouse on 2 December from 12pm to 2pm. This is a gathering for young businesswomen to make connections and build their professional networks.
What to expect
Each month, Minding Her Business will host a different industry-focused event with speakers hand-picked to fit the theme.
The upcoming session will focus on the theme of social enterprises. Through the support of social programmes and projects, social businesses frequently act as a link between profits and people by optimising their own profits while maximising benefits to the general improvement of society and the environment.
