    How did your research contribute?

    USW was commissioned by the Welsh Government advisory panel on female entrepreneurship to undertake a study with female entrepreneurs and with representatives of the business support sector to identify motivations, barriers and experiences of business support among women starting up and running their own businesses. The research focused on pre-start, start-up and growth stages of business and thus provided nuanced, current understandings of the experiences of female entrepreneurs at all stages in business.
