The Juno Project was created in 2012 to support women who wanted to work for themselves; a result of our founder Ali Golds' work in an East London college where she met countless potential female founders who were keen to learn the ropes of self-employment but didn't feel comfortable doing it in a classroom of guys. (Sorry gents).
Ali found that a lot of the women who came to her workshops were single mums. Desperate to support their families. As a single mum herself, Ali knew the pressures and was determined to help; so she published her first book 'How To Be Your Own Boss As A Single Mum' which reached #8 in the Amazon Small Business and Entrepreneurship chart - and told her all she needed to know (and had suspected). There were a MASS of single mums out there who wanted to learn how to run a business!
We've been making strides to help redress these figures, and have worked with all kinds of female founders in all kinds of industries from media to creative industries to business consultancy and the trades.
we realised that there was more that we could do. That the real key to improving the numbers of female founders, and of successful women in general, was to explore how we could support women when they were younger. Much younger, in fact.
Working with girls aged 14-16 who've experienced a range of challenging and difficult circumstances, we encourage them to explore their behaviours, attitudes and responses - and develop a growth mindset that will enable them to overcome barriers and achieve whatever goals they set themselves.
It's powerful, it's phenomenally successful, and it's humbling.
And it's based on these three simple words.
