WHO OR WHAT IS WiRE?
Women in Rural Enterprise (WiRE) is a national business support network of rural business women with little access to larger city networking. West Kent WiRE is a branch of this incredible network. West Kent WiRE was established a few years back and has recently undergone a mini revamp. We are now serving the west side of Kent and opening more of Kent for more potential groups to blossom. We have really looked into the requirements that small business owners are needing from networking groups and West Kent WiRE is going to try the utmost to meet those needs. We are looking into getting Industry Experts to come in and cover certain topics of running or growing a small business and provide you with the knowledge that you are wanting. The main purpose of WiRE is to support and encourage ALL small female businesses.
The West Kent group meet the 1st Wednesday of each month from 10am to 12.30 pm at The Moody Mare, 501 Seven Mile Ln, Maidstone ME18 5QY, UK
