The EDP Future 50, produced by the Evening News's sister paper, the Eastern Daily Press, is a list of companies that should be applauded for enterprising spirit and talent for innovation. Last year there were only two women in the 'ones to watch' for the future and so the debate has been scheduled in an attempt to look at the reasons why women are so under represented.

This meeting is open to men and women, as the aim is to get positive outcomes to take forward and encourage women entrepreneurs.

Among the seven panel members are Richard Ellis, chairman of the East of England Development Agency, Norwich North MP Chloe Smith, and EDP business editor Paul Hill.

Wine, refreshments and canap�s will be served and the cost of the evening if �7.50 for WEETU network members and �15 for guests.
