The Invisible Entrepreneurs - Women

Maggie O'Carroll calls for action to encourage more women to become entrepreneurs. She contrasts the 'palpable positive culture' of the US with a lack of organised UK support.

Maggie O'Carroll calls for action to encourage more women to become entrepreneurs. She contrasts the "palpable positive culture towards entrepreneurship and for female entrepreneurs" of the US with a lack of organised support in the UK. Recalling her mother's success as a farmer in the West of Ireland, she feels sure there were other powerful women behind the scenes. "We need these invisible entrepreneurs to step out into the spotlight and become the role models and the inspiration for others to join them."
Recorded at Leaf in Liverpool.
Presenter: Olly Mann
