EWIF (Encouraging Women into Franchising) are delighted to announce that they have recently become a partner of Global Entrepreneurship Week. The primary focus of EWIF is to support women who are looking for a route into the franchise industry.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business.
At EWIF our regional meetings are designed to provide the opportunity for prospective franchisors and franchisees to meet and network with a range of industry experts offering advice on how to enter the franchise industry. The EWIF Regional Meetings for the North and South West both run on the 12th November, acting as part of the celebrations leading up to Global Entrepreneurship Week.
The Regional Meetings at EWIF will form part the global activities that highlight and celebrate entrepreneurship alongside offering practical support to those who are interested in setting up their own business or developing their business networks.
Global Entrepreneurship Week runs from 16th to 22nd November and this year has the theme of Make it Happen. Recently at their 2015 National Conference EWIF announced a very similar 2016 focus of Making Things Happen. This link proved the perfect opportunity for the two organisations to team up to provide a fantastic opportunity for people to take action on their entrepreneurial ideas.
"EWIF are delighted to support Global Entrepreneurship Week as GEW purpose of inspiring people to explore their potential as self-starters and innovators is very similar to EWIF's mission of ‘encouraging, inspiring, educating and supporting more women into franchising’. Franchising is an excellent model for many women who want to have their own business but with the support and guidance of an established brand and a proven business model. We wholly support the ethos behind Global Entrepreneurship Week and hope that with EWIF's support more people can realise their dream of having their own business,” says Clive Sawyer, CEO of EWIF.
