Member of Parliament for Lewes, Maria Caulfield, has given her backing to the Government’s Women and Broadband Challenege Fund.
The fund supports women entreprentures to set up new online businesses and help expand existing ones and ensure that they can take advantage of superfast broadband. A further £1.1million is being made avaliable for the fund, which is in addition to the £1.1million already invested.
Local organisation, SWIFT 2 woman and broadband partnership is one of the projects that will be receiving an additional £68,000 in funding from the Government to carry on and expand its work.
Maria commented: “It is important that the Government continues to help entreprentures get their businesses online and provided them with the best opportunity and environment to succeed.
“I am also delighted that Swift 2 will be receiving additional funding which will help them to continue their great work.”
