PanelOn Thursday 27 July, the University’s Alumni Association went live with the second edition of their Facebook Live Series: Female Entrepreneurship: Taking your business to the next level.  Streamed live from Portland building, and since watched by 4k viewers, panelists discussed the steps they took in starting their own business, advice they would give to others and how they balanced work, life and study.

Gemma Frith, television and broadcasting graduate, presented the event and welcomed alumna Stephanie Marshall, Architectural Designer and Founder of Sea Salt 47, alumna Leonora Asomanin, Director & Founder of Là Mo Designs, and Amy Doyle, Support Officer in the University’s Research and Innovation department, who runs the Female Entrepreneurs Network.

The panel discussed how and why they took the next step to become an entrepreneur, challenges they encountered on their journey to becoming a business owner,  and the support services provided by the University including the Female Entrepreneurs Network.

Questions, submitted during the event from the live online audience, asked how the panelists use social media to market their business, and if they were aware of or used any funding services for their start up.
