Women’s Rural Entrepreneurial Network (WREN)

SECAD is leading a new Women’s Rural Entrepreneurial Network (WREN) project to support female entrepreneurs living in Cork and Limerick who have a concrete business idea and wish to become self-employed or who are already in the early stages of business development.

The programme will provide the option of accredited training as well as business and employment supports including personal development and business skills training, one to one and group mentoring, female ‘role model’ sharing of experience and support, themed networking and experiential learning events, formation and facilitation of the facilitated networking sessions and a range of other supports.

SECAD is working in partnership with Ballyhoura Development in Limerick and Cork Institute of Technology’s Rubicon Centre and Hincks Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence on its delivery.

The WREN Project is co-funded by the Irish Government and the European Social Fund as part of the ESF Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning (PEIL) 2014-2020 to promote entrepreneurial skills and business start-up amongst women in the region.

Minister of State for Justice David Stanton TD, Suzanne Kearny, Assistant CEO SECAD, Dorothy O’Tuama, Lee Valley Taste Trails and Toni McCaul, SECAD, Programme Manager.
