Where’s all the action with exports? With women entrepreneurs. Women are becoming increasingly important among the world’s exporters because many women run small businesses.
In Australia, for example, women run one-third of all small businesses. If this trend continues, many new exporting businesses will be run by women entrepreneurs, or will have women in key positions.
In anticipation of more talent to come, Austrade has set up a Women in Export program. There are more than 19,000 women export executives in Australia, but there is plenty more talent out there.
The program encourages networking and mentoring among women exporters and business groups to raise awareness of Austrade programs such as the New Exporter Development Program and Export Market Development Grants.
