Right now more women are becoming entrepreneurs than ever before. The Government-commissioned 2022 Rose Review found the growth of female-led businesses is outstripping that of male-led companies for the first time, while women-led start-ups are set to add £250 billion to the UK economy in the next few years – and you can be part of that trend.

Good Housekeeping's panel discussion, 'How To Start Your Own Business', which is part of GH LIVE, a three-day festival of events in London, is to help anyone who wants to be their own boss.

Successful entrepreneurs Harriet Hastings, founder of Biscuiteers, Steph Douglas, founder of Don’t Buy Her Flowers, and Emma Jones CBE, founder of small business support platform Enterprise Nation, will be revealing how they have done it – as well as sharing their advice and answering all your questions.

The talk will be lead by Good Housekeeping's Features director Jackie Brown, who will be asking the panellists to share their insight on everything from how to write a business plan to testing if your idea will work and marketing your product.

Whether you’ve got an idea for a business or you are already starting out and need a bit of direction, this panel of successful women will help you get started.

The event will take place on 25 June, and tickets include two drinks tokens and access to the GH Live House, including its coffee and Champagne bar as well as a special 100th anniversary goody bag to take home.
