Caroline Pegden, co-founder of TempaGoGo

Caroline Pegden is the co-founder of TempaGoGo, an award-winning comparison website for temporary recruitment agencies in the UK. 

After more than 10 years in the public and private sector, working in large private corporations such as JPMorgan or McKinsey, she left the comfort of a stable career to start her own startup with her husband.

The mother of 2 young children, she is determined to show that you don’t need to be a “super woman” to be a woman entrepreneur, and as long as you’re well organised, get support for your childcare (a trustworthy nanny is worth gold!), and establish strict boundaries between work and family. 
Being inspired by Sheryl Sandberg, “what would you do if you weren’t afraid?”, Caroline recently won the Rising Stars award for Female Entrepreneurs from WeAreTheCity, an organisation “supporting the female pipeline” in the UK.

Her top tips for aspiring entrepreneurs are: don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice, reaching out to people who have already started their entrepreneurial journey, that either you know or you don’t know (LinkedIn is very helpful!); leverage all the free resources before starting paying for services (government guidance, online tutorials, free workshops…); give it a go and experiment, experiment, experiment!
