About the organiser

This event is run by the Accelerator for Enterprising Women in partnership with Visa and lady-brains. 

The Accelerator for Enterprising Women is a national initiative designed to support and empower women (or those who identify as female) aged 18+ to create self-made career paths in entrepreneurship. The program is funded under the Australian Government’s Women’s Leadership and Development Program.

The program seeks to build an industry alliance of Australia’s digital leaders, education professionals, entrepreneurial organisations as well as large and small businesses, to ensure Australia’s next generation of businesswomen have the skills to run their own businesses or transform the industries in which they work.
