Startup & Stilettos: how we’re creating a wave of female social entrepreneurs

Startup and Stilettos is an InspirEngage programme, training vulnerable adult women to become economically active through social enterprise. We train the participants on modules such as identity, mapping the community and even confidence development through Persian dance for them to feel good, business savvy and equipped with practical steps to bring their concept to life. The programme benefits the women themselves, their children/ families and their community. Our partners Hillcroft College were invaluable to the success.

Social enterprise is a fantastic model for these ladies to utilise what they have experienced along with their aspiration to make a difference and work. It’s one of the programmes where we’ve had the most social impact

Here’s a flavour of the journey our lovely ladies went on.
