Women’s Business School
LEARN HOW TO CREATE YOUR DREAM BUSINESS
“I loved the mix of formal training with opportunities for feedback and to be accountable with homework. As well as that, there were so many opportunities for one-on-one and group coaching, live feedback and support and a really varied selection of some of Australia’s most informed and successful business women to pass on their knowledge to us in webinars and training sessions“
“The ignite program helped us to really clarify our companies values, our “WHY” and who we were trying to sell to- our target market. We loved the “creating a life you love” where we explored and visualised where we wanted to see the business and what our dream work days look like. The course content highly relevant and loved connecting with other female entrepreneurs”
“The program speakers where inspiring, very approachable and came with a wealth of knowledge. The set tasks were relatable and assisted in developing ‘Kat & Fox’ further. I treasure the fact that I was pushed to address certain aspects I had neglected to do so prior to jumping in. The networking and contacts I made on the program have been invaluable to me even evolving into personal friendships!”

We all have a part to play in co-creating the future and this program has been designed to support the women who will lead the way in changing the world.
Through supporting women globally to create economic sustainability The Women’s Business School aims to directly impact 9 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals:
WHY WE’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT SUPPORTING WOMEN
We believe women will change the world.
And we believe investing in women is the most powerful way to achieve this.
When women are supported to succeed the positive impacts are felt by their partners, their families, their local communities and beyond.
Women see problems from a fresh perspective and find unique ways to solve problems. Their enterprises are often created to make a difference and bring a strong sense of purpose too, solving environmental, social and humanitarian issues in big and small ways through their start-ups.
The Women’s Business School has been designed to support and increase the viability and success of women-led ventures. We are committed to ensuring that women from a diverse range of backgrounds have access to world-class education, peer connectivity, mentoring and support in a professionally challenging but safe and inclusive environment.
COMMITTED TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Empowering all women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors is essential to build stronger economies, achieve internationally agreed goals for development and sustainability, and improve the quality of life for women, men, families and communities.
Statistics show that women, particularly women from indigenous and multicultural backgrounds, and those based in rural, regional and remote locations, don’t participate in incubators and accelerators at the same rates as men. We are committed to ensuring that women from a diverse range of backgrounds have access to world-class education, peer connectivity, mentoring and support in a professionally challenging but safe and welcoming environment.
The Women’s Business School is committed to having an impact on diversity in entrepreneurship through leadership on this important issue and actively providing the right conditions, support and opportunities for all women to succeed and reach their full potential.
