iStart will give women new to business all of the start-up basics, motivation, goal setting as well as sessions on websites, SEO and digital marketing techniques. 

iStart is intended as a springboard for launching a new digitally sound business that will grow with technology, making it work for you, not against and give your business the best possible start in a digital world.

The content is provided by local business women, chosen for their expertise, knowledge and empathy for women in business. iStart will have one classroom day in a small welcoming group providing you with the confidence to tackle all of those niggling questions, with the support of the experts and fellow delegates.

With iStart, you will also be able to take advantage of 4 hours mentoring to help you over early hurdles. Our digital resource bank and online signposting will cut down on hours of searching, which we can all do without. 

WiRE believe that by working in small groups and using the extensive online tools, we are able offer the continued, combined and creative experiences of the peer group to boost your personal learning, moving you towards a successful woman led business.

Councillor Shaun Davies, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Neighbourhood Services, said: “This project is a great way for women to learn new skills in a supportive environment and has proven very successful. The new iStart courses are specifically tailored to support women who want to start up in business for the first time. I’m sure there will be plenty of competition for spaces so my advice would be to book early.”

A spokesman for WiRE said: “WiRE is very proud and excited to offer iStart and really urges local women who are planning a business start-up or are in the early stages to please contact us for a chat or go to the WiRE Challenge website to book, places are limited so do hurry. We look forward to working with local women over the coming months and following their business successes.”
