A NEW pilot programme to help encourage female entrepreneurs is being launched today with the aim of expanding access to advice and guidance among start-ups.

The Women in Enterprise initiative is backed by the Ayrshire Association of Business Women (AABW) and will be sponsored by Marie Macklin, chief executive of Kilmarnock-based property development company, Klin Group, pictured below.

Macklin will fund membership of the AABW for 12 women over the course of a year. She will also will act as sponsor throughout their membership, providing mentoring sessions throughout the year.
