Why join BAWE Scotland?

BAWE Scotland is about Internationalisation, Growth and Mentoring


BAWE Scotland is there for support, growth and general sanity.

When you are running a business and have risked your own money the journey can be rewarding. It can be lonely at times, it can be frustrating and it can be very enjoyable and profitable. At most times you will benefit from an informal mentor or someone to compare notes with.

BAWE is there to informally educate and support members in their aims for their business.

Learn from others

Topics of interest to female entrepreneurs are discussed and speakers who have done it all before often attend.

New attendees are always welcome. BAWE has strong links to the world organization and FCEM (Femmes Chefs d’Enterprises Mondiales) and so if you are up for travelling internationally you may attend meetings in any Country to network.


Female entrepreneurship in Scotland is growing and BAWE would like to bring them together to support them to grow and prosper and continue to add to Scotland’s GDP growth.

We also have the backing of Royal Bank of Scotland since 2016 and this will mean access to facilities for events which would not previously have been available, which will be a great help for training days or mentoring.
