Flourish – the Start-up Club for Women

Flourish is for women looking to start a business or those in the early stages of establishing their venture. The programme is designed to help you to stay motivated and focused during the critical early stage of your business development. Mutual learning and support is a key element of Flourish and a mix of people at different stages of start-up will enrich that.

We are restricting the Flourish group to 20 people. All applicants will have a short phone interview to make sure this is the best time and fit for you and the programme. The deadline for completed applications is Wednesday 24 February 2016

What's involved?
There will be 4 monthly events, challenges, a facilitated online group and a re-union event.

* 1. Application

Flourish is a commitment not just to your own business development, but also to support others in the group. That's why we need applicants to be able to commit to:

a) attending at least four of the five sessions (Friday mornings dates tbc)

b) Participate in the Flourish Facebook group - share your own needs and help others. 

c) You'll take part in the challenges (they'll all be achieve-able and aimed at stretching you and your business).

d) complete project surveys and feedback forms (so we can raise funds to support more women in future)

By submitting this application you confirm those commitments.

* 2. Why do you want to join Flourish?
