New funding has been announced today for female entrepreneurs living in Cork and Limerick.

The Women’s Rural Entrepreneurial Network (WREN) project will see more than €330,000 in funding allocated to promote entrepreneurial skills amongst women in these regions, through a tailored and focused approach.

The WREN Project is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020.

Under the project, training programmes will include:

• Personal development and business skills training
• One to one and group mentoring
• Female ‘role model’ sharing of experience and support
• Themed networking and experiential learning events
• Formation and facilitation of the facilitated networking sessions
• A networking/business pitching event

South & East Cork Area Development (SECAD) will lead the project, working in partnership with Ballyhoura Development in Limerick and Cork Institute of Technology’s Rubicon Centre and Hincks Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence.

Speaking at the launch of WREN, Minister of State for Justice and Equality, David Stanton said, “I am delighted to announce this important funding for Cork and Limerick and know it will provide valuable support to women considering self-employment or those with a good business idea that want to create a business. SECAD and Ballyhoura Development, in partnership with CIT, will deliver a targeted, focused programme of training, mentoring and support infrastruture for women in the Region.”
