Boosting Female Founders Initiative: Design Consultation

Consultation has opened for the Boosting Female Founders Initiative. This program will contribute to removing barriers for women’s economic participation in the workforce by providing access to finance for startups led by women.

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

Opened on 24 August 2019, closes on 4 October 2019.
