Designed to support female entrepreneurship at Trinity by providing students with mentors who can help them advance both personally and professionally.

Each year, Women Who Wow pairs female students with experienced female mentors. These mentors share their knowledge and experience, and in turn help their mentees develop their business ideas, grow their early-stage startups, pursue opportunities in the startup industry, help them to network, or simply empower them to get where they want to go.

A selection of journeys from the Women Who Wow programme since it began in 2016 are included below.
