JournoLink promotes female entrepreneurs in supporting the Rose Review findings

JournoLink, the online platform that helps businesses engage with the media, has played its part in responding to the recommendations of the Rose Review.


Of the thousands of businesses that we support on JournoLink, not enough come from female entrepreneurs, yet we know that a third of the country’s start-ups are driven by women

Working closely with everywoman, the largest female business network in the UK, JournoLink has been instrumental in building the new everywoman entrepreneurs hub, launched today (8 March) to coincide with International Women’s Day and the release of the Rose Review, commissioned by the Treasury to look into the ongoing challenges faced by women in the UK in starting and scaling up businesses.


Commenting on the initiative, Adam Prickett, Technology Director at JournoLink said “Of the thousands of businesses that we support on JournoLink, not enough come from female entrepreneurs, yet we know that a third of the country’s start-ups are driven by women. We are keen to see more benefit from enhancing their external profiles and being able to help everywoman in the build and launch of their new Hub, addressing many of the recommendations of the Rose Review, is something we have been really excited by. We now look forward to playing our part in particular on the PR and marketing aspect of the Hub”.


Launched in 2014 JournoLink has become established as the key affordable resource for businesses looking to engage with the media, but without the budget to afford the services of a PR agency. Offering an intuitive online platform enabling press release writing and distribution, access to journalists looking for spokespeople and case studies, weekly updates on forthcoming news items, and a supported media room for businesses, JournoLink has gone one stage further with everywoman in providing the full underlying infrastructure for the everywoman entrepreneurs hub marking an important step in the development of the JournoLink model.
