Closing date for applications is Wednesday 11th November 2020.

The current crisis is undoubtedly having a huge impact on how we live and work, but this situation could provide the ideal opportunity to develop a business idea and get ready to take it forward when the time is right. Take your first step today.

These FREE sessions will take place via Zoom whilst social distancing measures are in place (dates below).

This popular programme is delivered by Let's Do Business Group in partnership with NatWest.


Her Biz: What’s it about?
To increase entrepreneurship locally, we are offering women in East Sussex & Kent a fantastic opportunity to come together to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence they’ll need to launch a successful business.

This inspiring programme has been specifically created to help and encourage women to set up new businesses. From refining your business idea to marketing and managing your finances, we can help you to prepare for a successful launch.

That's why we also include an optional competition to give you the chance to win £500 towards start-up costs. Following the course you will just need to submit a business plan to enter, and it's open to all those selected to participate.

Given the current need for social distancing, the programme will be delivered directly through your screens, as you join our experienced Start-Up Coaches for a series of 4 x 2 hour sessions hosted via Zoom.

So far, we have had ten successful rounds of the Her Biz programme across East Sussex and Kent, each one over-subscribed, so we urge you to apply now to avoid disappointment!

Prior to the workshops you will need to be available to complete a telephone call to discuss eligibility.


The programme will help you to:
- Review and clarify your business idea
- Consider your strengths and how to overcome barriers
- Research your market
- Understand the numbers and create projections
- Develop your business model and kick-start your plan
- Start shaping your marketing strategy incl. online and social media presence
- Gain peer support from like-minded people

The programme also includes a 1-2-1 session with a Start-Up Coach to refine your individual plan.


Workshop dates/times:
The programme consists of 4 x 2 hour sessions, each from 10 am to 12 pm.

We are running two cohorts based on your location.

Please note that previous participants have done so whilst caring for kids and juggling other distractions. So don't let that be a barrier and if you have any specific needs or cannot attend all the sessions in your location please just drop us a line to and we can discuss options.

If you are in Kent:
Friday 20th November
Friday 27th November
