A WOMEN’S networking group called Elevenses was launched at Newhaven Enterprise Centre.
More than 15 local business women attended the event held in March.
The guest speaker was Angela Plowman from Bodyshapers Sussex, who talked about how she established her business, how it has grown and her plans for the future.
Centre manager Claire Duc said: “I was really impressed with the way everybody got involved in the event from the moment they arrived.
“The informal meeting lasted two hours but we could have easily stayed a lot longer.
“I think everyone found it helpful to hear from other women about the highs and lows of running a business, particularly those who have established their own companies.
“I am looking forward to the next Elevenses meeting and hope that it will be as much of a success as this one.”
