The Power of Pulling together
New for 2020, Women’s Business Station (WBS) has launched a social investment offer that will add direct impact to your community and social strategy, whilst promoting your business and reputation within the community.

The Women’s Business Station is a wonderful concept, proven to work, and led by an extraordinary entrepreneur whose mission is to enable women to set up new enterprises and businesses. In turn these enterprises will employ those in valuable and sustainable jobs in their local communities. This effects real social change.
Women’s Business Station ensures female entrepreneurs get the traction they need for their ambitions, which will translate into new wealth creation and employment in Scotland. Women’s Business Station will operate the headline Fast Track entrepreneurship programme which was proven to work so well in the Coca Cola 5by20 initiative. In addition, Women’s Business Station will run other courses for budding entrepreneurs and outside training. It is ambitious, innovative and impactful.
I am delighted to be a supportive investor and advocate for Angie and the Women’s Business Station.

Lindsays is delighted to join the Women’s Business Station as an empowerment partner and continue to support its work of giving female entrepreneurs the structure, know-how and inspiration to achieve success. Lindsays started the journey with the Coca Cola 5 by 20 initiative and we have seen it grow and expand under Angie De Vos’ leadership. The Women’s Business Station programmes, including the tried and tested FasTRACK model will extend and build on the achievements of 5 by 20; continuing to help women break out of traditional moulds and driving progress on obstacles such as underrepresentation at senior levels and the gender pay gap. We are delighted to be involved and look forward to working closely with Angie and the team.
