We are delighted that Sarah Crawley, Chief Executive of iSE and driving force behind Women & Enterprise, has been made a Visiting Industrial Fellow at Aston University. The title, which she will hold for two years, is given in recognition of the work Sarah has done to help promote understanding, experience and awareness of business growth and entrepreneurship across the university.
Sarah has hosted events at iSE to engage social enterprises with the support available at Aston University, and has worked with MBA Students to support their knowledge of the issues affecting social enterprises. She is also an alumni of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme, run by the University.
Sarah says: “I feel honoured to be made a Visiting Fellow by Aston University. My experience as a participant on 10,000 Small Businesses Programme has been extremely valuable for both the growth of iSE and for me personally. I welcome the opportunity to contribute both to the programme in the future and to conversations concerning government policy for support to small businesses and social enterprise.”
