Five women founded companies have been selected to take part in Endeavor Ireland’s Scale Up Programme for Women Entrepreneurs, supported by Philip Lee.
This unique programme, which officially launched in January, comprises of ten one-on-one mentorship sessions over the course of five months. The sessions will be tailored specifically to the founders’ individual needs to support their ambitions for growth and help their business to scale.
Philip Lee’s corporate team will be available to advise on a wide breadth of legal issues.
Following a call for applications last October, the women-founded companies that have been selected to take part include fine jewellery brand Chupi; video commerce business Axonista; diversity platform inclusio; pharmaceutical consulting company Orphan Drug Consulting; and sustainable period care company Riley.
The programme kicked off with a session in Philip Lee’s Dublin office led by Anne Heraty, Endeavor Ireland Board member and Philip Lee corporate partner, Anna Hickey.
Anna Hickey said; “We are delighted to partner with Endeavor Ireland on this Scale Up Programme. Over the next five months we are looking forward to working with the five successful applicants, to help them realise their ambitions to scale their businesses globally.”
