The founder of a Penryn-based social media marketing agency has been chosen by Facebook to act as one of just 24 mentors in the country to provide training and support to female start-up business owners.

Katherine George, the founder of Oh So Social, has been named as a social media mentor and trainer on behalf of Facebook, as part of the annual #SheMeansBusiness campaign in partnership with Enterprise Nation.

She said: “I am honoured and humbled to be one of just 24 #SheMeansBusiness mentors on behalf of Facebook. I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge to help other female entrepreneurs who are starting out where I did just a few years ago to succeed in business.”

To launch the campaign and to celebrate International Women’s Day on Thursday (March 8), Oh So Social will be hosting a female founder meet-up at The Falmouth Hotel, where female start-up business owners can get their social media questions answered, meet other female start-ups and hear their stories.

#SheMeansBusiness was launched last year to celebrate female entrepreneurs and to facilitate Facebook and Instagram training to female founders of start-up businesses across the UK. Last year, the campaign provided training to over 10,000 female entrepreneurs.
