What Our Previous Participants Say

It’s amazing if I look back to a few years ago – I would have never imagined I could be where I am now.
My mind has shifted completely – I am so much more motivated and confident in what the business can do. I encourage other women to join the programme as it truly transforms your life!

Listening to Your Voice

The Female Founders Programme came at the right time for developing and progressing my business. The one to one advice, seminars and assistance with my marketing strategy really helped me focus and identify things which needed to be addressed. The support keeps you motivated… it gives you the tools to go away and do it yourself!
Saime Duhare

Halal Fresh

I gained valuable skills and confidence to grow my business, expand and venture into new markets to increase my turnover. It made me step out of my comfort zone and adopt new strategies – I am seeing positive changes already! Now, with the support of the Ambassadors Programme, I’m confident I can encourage other women to achieve the same.
