A scheme to help more women make the most of the opportunities presented through becoming a digital entrepreneur is being expanded in Surrey.

Surrey WISE (Women in the Superfast Economy) has received £75,000 from the Women and Broadband Challenge Fund and will now aim to put this money towards improving the skills of local female business owners, the Surrey Mirror reports.

Surrey WISE Digital Coach for Bletchingley Wendy Ager commented: "It's wonderful to be part of such a great project and a fabulous opportunity for women to become more confident in using online resources I've found invaluable for business."

Key abilities that will be shared through the scheme include ideas on how using the latest technology can help bolster business acumen and decision-making, as well as opening up new markets through areas like social media.

Individuals taking part will be given the necessary skills to expand their business online, with the initiative open to existing business operators and those looking to start up their own venture in the future.
