Winning Women’s Votes: Women in small business 12 Feb 2010
How much help should they get?

Small business is a good barometer of how the economy is performing - by the same token it’s an indicator of the impact of any recession. Female entrepreneurs have flourished since the 90s, Martha Lane Fox is a commonly quoted example, and the internet undoubtedly makes it easier for women to set up a business. So if you’re a female entrepreneur how tough are you finding it right now and what would like to hear from any potential new government? Fleur Emery, of organic instant porridge company Grasshopper joins Jenni alongside Sally Arkley, Chief Executive of The Women’s Business Development Agency.
