Alison Cork

CPF Champion for women entrepreneurs

Alison Cork is a serial entrepreneur, broadcaster and writer. Over the past twenty years she has built up a group of homes and interiors businesses, spanning publishing, online retail, design, licensing and TV shopping. Prior to that she co-founded a publishing company which floated in 1994, making her one of the youngest ever female founders of a publicly quoted company.

In 2017 she founded The National Women's Enterprise Network, to encourage and support women who want to start their own business, and which runs the Make It Your Business seminars and website.

A lifelong Conservative, Alison has supported Women2Win from its launch, and believes that female entrepreneurship is also an important conduit for introducing more women to Conservative values and public office.
