SheStarts is a competitive startup program for ambitious female entrepreneurs with big ideas for high-impact businesses. A a national startup program and campaign designed to turbocharge female leadership in business and innovation. SheStarts has been months in the making, since we first announced the program at a champagne breakfast with Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine on International Women’s Day.
SheStarts will find, fund and accelerate 10 ambitious female entrepreneurs to launch high-impact global tech startups, with $100k each in pre-seed funding, access to an incredible team of advisors and tech experts and the backing of Australia’s leading companies keen to turn ideas into reality. We’ll champion the stories of the SheStarts founders in a massive campaign, anchored by a documentary web-series following their startup journey.
Founders will receive $100k pre-seed funding each in exchange for 15% equity to take your business from idea to launch. When you’re preparing to launch, the impressive group of SheStarts partners will provide specialist insights and opportunities for customer testing and distribution. And if you want to raise growth capital after you launch, we’ll support you to showcase your business to our global network of investors and VC partners.
