Boost Australia’s female founders

Are you an entrepreneur or a supporter of start-ups? The Australian Government want to hear from you!

Consultations for the Australian Government’s $18 million Boosting Female Founders Initiative are open (read the media release).

The program will provide targeted funding and support for women engaging in innovative entrepreneurship and ensure the needs of diverse groups are served, including female entrepreneurs in regional areas and Indigenous founders who can face greater difficulties accessing capital.

The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science is seeking views on the design of this program from people who have experience founding a startup or have been supporting startups.

To take part in designing this program to help us support our future female entrepreneurs visit our ++BFF Consultation Hub++ and provide your feedback by 4 October 2019.

If you are interested in being part of a focus group in your state or territory please send your expression of interest to ++BFF@industry.gov.au++.
