We are a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, providing advice and guidance to women looking for a route into the franchise industry. Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower women considering or involved in franchising through a network of Ambassadors. Our remit is threefold; to encourage women to consider buying a franchise, to encourage businesswomen to franchise their existing operations and to help franchisors attract more women to their networks.


At EWIF, we’re looking to change the face of the franchise sector so that women have a much larger presence.


EWIF is built on our community of Ambassdors, who offer free services to women seeking advice and guidance on entering the franchise industry. 


We hold regular meetings across the country. Click to find out where your nearest meeting is. See you soon!
