“Business Link in London was delighted to support the FreshIdeas mentor programme. It is vital in the current climate that London’s women entrepreneurs are encouraged by other established businesses and organisations to develop and succeed in their own business ventures. I was highly impressed with the quality of all the entrepreneurs”
