Birmingham-based publisher will be mentored by the online marketplace notonthehighstreet
Emma Wright, founder of the Emma Press, is to be mentored by the online marketplace notonthehighstreet as part of a new three-year mentoring partnership with the Prince's Trust.
The partnership supports the Trust's Women Supporting Women initiative, which aims to "empower young women with a creative and entrepreneurial flair". Emma Press, based in Birmingham, is one of five women-led businesses included in the first round of mentees.
Wright set up the press, which specialises in poetry and children's books, in 2012 with the support of the Prince's Trust' Explore Enterprise programme. She says: "The Prince's Trust has provided such great support for me since I started my business. I was hugely lacking in confidence to begin with, and the Explore Enterprise mentoring really helped me find my feet. I feel privileged to be part of the first cohort of mentees in the Prince's Trust and notonthehighstreet partnership, and I can't wait to keep learning and developing."
