100 specially-invited female entrepreneurs have celebrated their achievements at an exclusive reception in the House of Lords, hosted by f:Entrepreneur. And Julie Smith, who owns The Black Cat Café on High Street in Ruddington, was one of them!
Julie, who also co-owns Black Cat Accounting, attended a business breakfast on Wednesday 4th March where inspirational businesswomen were recognised for their achievements. f:Entrepreneur is run by Small Business Britain, which says it established the #ialso100 hashtag to reflect that women in business rarely have a single-job career.
On being listed in the #ialso100, Julie summed up: “I’m honoured, and indeed humbled, to have made the list this year. The women I met at the House of Lords were strong, independent, knowledgeable and focused – and I can’t believe that I’ve been chosen to stand amongst them.”
Organisers explained: “The aim of f:Entrepreneur is to showcase multi-achieving women like Julie in the #ialso100, to provide lessons of challenge and success for all small business founders – both men and women. The #ialso100 is a collection of female entrepreneurs, recognised for inspiring their peers and communities through their businesses and wider activities.
The campaign is built around a programme of content, stories and events including roundtables, Q&A sessions and panels as well as larger all-day events which took place in the lead-up to International Women’s Day on 8th March.”
Well done, Julie!
