Boosting Female Founders – space industry consultation

The Science Commercialisation Policy team within the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science is developing the Boosting Female Founders Initiative. The program will contribute to removing barriers for women’s economic participation in the workforce by providing access to finance for startups led by women.

They want to hear from stakeholders in the startup and innovation ecosystem about how they should design the program, including criteria to target investment into female founders, with emphasis on those that experience greater barriers to access capital. The process recognises that applying a one-size-fits-all set of criteria to determine eligibility to programs or support may not account for important differences.
