Dorset Business Women Go Digital

Research by The Women’s Business Council has found that if women set up businesses at the same rate as men, there would be an extra 1 million women entrepreneurs contributing to the UK economy. They also identified that there are over 2.4 million women who are not in work but want to work.

The increased availability of superfast broadband around Dorset due to the Superfast Dorset infrastructure programme provides an opportunity for women-led businesses and potential female entrepreneurs to take advantage of faster broadband to expand or set up new businesses. The Dorset Business Women Go Digital Programme, funded by The Government Equalities Office, was designed to help bring women up to speed so that they can reap the benefits offered by faster broadband.

This year, 139 women have benefited from support from the programme. Our activities for this programme have now finished but you can still access learning resources and get some great tips on using digital technology by using the links below.
