Last week the Surrey Women’s Entrepreneurship Network (SWEN) was launched.

The SWEN is a collaboration between Surrey Research Park, SETsquared Surrey & University of Surrey, aiming to improve opportunities for business growth and innovation including access to information and support for women entrepreneurs, creating positive impact locally and beyond.

The audience heard a keynote by Nathalie Hinds delivered beautifully by Monique Raats on “Three Powerful Words”, before two inspiring panels took to the stage.

The panellists Tobi EyinadeFiona SwenyShelley Coleman – MarshSusannah McClintockDr Alison Callwood and Matthew McCann  brought a wealth of experience and were incredibly generous with their advice and guidance for the women entrepreneurs in the network.

Kathy Slack OBE  closed the event with great energy and a clear message to the audience to “feel that buzz in your belly” and keep the momentum going forward.

SWEN Co-founder Kat Mack says, “It was wonderful to see so many people in the room committed to the support and pursuit of women’s entrepreneurship. The community is vibrant and poised! I can’t wait to see the network flourish!”
