About the Female Founders program
The Female Founders program is designed to assist female founders at different stages of the entrepreneurial lifecycle. The program will be focused on increasing the participation rates and business skills of female founders in Queensland along with providing support to female founders who are in the growth phase and need assistance to take their business to the next level.
On International Women’s Day 2019 Minister Kate Jones announced that Impact Innovation Group with Advisory Board Centre will commence the development of the Advance Queensland Female Founders Program.
The program is aimed at female founders who are:
- starting out or have a good business idea/concept but need to work on their business skills and capability
- looking for mentors
- wanting to attend networking events
- getting ready to establish an advisory board
- seeking connection with a community of female founders
How to apply
On International Women’s Day 2018 key female leaders from Queensland’s startup community were invited to share their experience and solutions with Minister Kate Jones at the launch of the Female Founders' Program consultation process.
Participants at this event included female founders who were recipients of several Advance Queensland supported programs such as Ignite Ideas, HotDesQ and the Catalyst Female Founders’ Mission to London.
