Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 9.30.42 PM

Sydney network Heads Over Heels is designed to rival “the boys club.”

Every few months, 70 high-powered executives meet for Heads Over Heels. They listen to business pitches from female entrepreneurs, then break into small, revolving “huddles,” where the women “call out” for customers, money or advice.

What are the results?

  • StorReduce co-founder Vanessa Wilson raised $400,000 in seed funding.
  • Event software company Ivvy raised $1 million.
  • Enabled Employment raised close to $400,000 in seed funding.

Are you ready to grow?  Then reach out to Heads Over Heels.  Learn more.

Investing in Women Entrepreneurs Will Break Barriers to Exporting

WomenExporters

Over the next two years, Australia will serve as a champion to improve the capacity of trade promotion agencies in the APEC region to support women exporters says Australia’s Ambassador for Women and Girls, Natasha Stott Despoja.

While leading Australia’s delegation to the APEC Women and the Economy Forum (WEF) in Beijing, Ms. Stott Despoja said Australia’s foreign policy and aid program were targeting three persistent challenges to gender equality by addressing violence against women and girls, supporting women’s leadership and promoting women’s economic empowerment.

Ms. Stoff Despoja adds, “Research has shown that women face greater barriers to exporting – such as access to finance, resources and information.”

When It Comes To Exporting, Women Entrepreneurs Are Where The Action Is

Yabby Preparation At Cambinata Yabbies

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.

Calling All Women in Global Business

womeninglobalbusinesseventwegg

Australia is the host country for a “Women in Global Business” National Seminar Series (refer to Women in Export Program).

Participants will learn about specific opportunities and strategies for building sustainable export programs from Austrade’s highly experienced in-market Trade Commissioners and local case study speakers.

Australia’s initiative is very much in line with the mission of WEGG:

The Women in Export program aims to ensure women in business are aware of, and have access to, the full range of Austrade’s services to assist them in becoming successful and sustainable exporters. This is being done by:

  • encouraging businesswomen and businesses owned or operated by women to export
  • identifying businesswomen who are active in export and who could become role models for other women in business
  • working with existing women’s networks to help them achieve a greater export focus among their membership

For more information about the seminar series (starts April 2), go here.
