Dorset Business Women Go Digital

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.
