Female Entrepreneurship Day

Join the nest team at the University of Portsmouth for our first Female Entrepreneurship Day.

This event is a great opportunity for students, staff, graduates and business owners to come together to share best practice and to actively take part in discussion and collaboration.

Whilst the event focuses on the subject of Female Entrepreneurship, we would like to welcome our male colleagues to also take part in the day and to further enrich the event – all are welcome!
