Proactive recently worked closely with GMIT Innovation Hubs to develop the logo and website www.empowerher.ie for their new EMPOWER Programme, which highlights the lack of female entrepreneurs and introduces initiatives to encourage women to start their own businesses.

The “EMPOWER Programme” has been launched to encourage more women to engage in start-ups in the Galway, Mayo, and Roscommon area. The idea of the EMPOWER Programme is to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of female entrepreneurs and to identify the challenges that they face and more importantly effective ways to overcome these challenges and become the business leaders of the future.

The official launch of the EMPOWER Programmes takes place on Wednesday 13th Sept in the Connacht Hotel in Galway. Guest speakers such as Chanelle McCoy (Chanelle Pharmaceuticals), Breege O Donaghue (ex CEO of Primark and Chair of the Design Council of Ireland) and Evelyn O’ Toole (CLS, 2017 E&Y Ent of Year Finalist, and long-standing Proactive client) will be joined by a panel of female entrepreneurs to share their knowledge and experience.
