Scotland’s Female Entrepreneurs Get on Track as ‘Women’s Business Station’ Launched

An ambitious, national programme aimed at supporting thousands of women on their business journey was launched in Dundee today (Friday 29 November 2019).

Women’s Business Station continues the legacy of the highly successful and award-winning Coca-Cola 5by20 Dundee programme which, since 2017, has supported over 170 women, over 90 of whom have launched their own business and over 40 of whom continue to grow their business.

The new social enterprise has an ambitious, 10 year plan to be positioned in five towns or cities across Scotland. Learning from Coca-Coca, Women’s Business Station has set its own target, ‘10by30’, with hopes to enhance the socio-economic empowerment of 10,000 women in Scotland by 2030.

As well as formally launching the organisation on the first day of its three-day festive market and business start-up exhibition within Wellgate Shopping Centre, Angie De Vos (Foreman), CEO unveiled the organisation’s vision going forwards.

Women’s Business Station is in discussions with Dundee City Council and the landlords of Wellgate Shopping Centre to transform a former, 8,000sq ft retail unit into a Business Start-up and Growth Station for aspiring women entrepreneurs. Designed with input from women who took part in the Coca-Cola programme, in conjunction with Dundee architect Alastair Fitchet of AJFitchet Architect, the unit would house 10 co-working pods, community area, meeting spaces and retail spaces where women can test the market. It is hoped that works could commence by Summer 2020.
