Visa reminds Cork business women to apply for She’s Next Grant

Visa is reminding women business owners in Cork to enter the She’s Next Grant Programme. She’s Next offers the chance to win one of five €10,000 grants in addition to a year of business coaching.

The programme was designed to support and encourage women entrepreneurs in Ireland.

In Ireland, for every woman that is an early-stage entrepreneur, there are nearly double the number of men. Confidence continues to be a barrier, with only 38% of Irish women perceiving they have the necessary skills to start a business, compared to 58% of men.

Mandy Lamb, Managing Director UK & Ireland, Visa said: “

Women who own and manage businesses face a unique set of challenges including access to capital and peer networks. That’s why we’re excited to help make a difference to women business-owners across Ireland today through the second She’s Next Grant Programme.  Our research also shows women are less confident than men in growing their business which is why we’re particularly proud to offer access to coaching and support through IFundWomen as well as that injection of €10,000 in capital.”

Applications are invited under five different categories, including micro business, early stage business, small business, innovation and sustainability.
