The `’How do I?” and “Where can I?” questions will be answered from the exhibitors on the day from how to finance your set up with AIB, through logo design, business law, tax and accounts. `’I need a website`’, and “I don’t know where to start with social media” – all these questions and more will be answered from members on the day from women just like you who support one another on the enterprise journey.

There is an amazing opportunity to win over €600 worth of business supports, and on the day enjoy a cuppa in the coffee corner and even sign up for membership of Donegal Women in Business Network on the day for only €40 for the year.
