And this is why we have created these programs. To give you the clarity you need, guide you on the path and help you to find success.

Advice, articles and inspiration


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.


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.


Group mentoring with successful female founders

Get true and tested advice from experienced entrepreneurs and industry leaders. You’ll get insider information from women from a range of industries, who have created successful and profitable companies and generously share their stories of how they’ve overcome adversity to create profitable brands.


We believe that women hold the power to change the world

Motherhood is so important, women are literally creating the blueprint for how the future will look. We believe that this role is so important and that it is possible to combine business and motherhood in a way that works for women and their families. Having it all is possible and we want to share with women how other families, just like theirs, are making it happen.


Industry Specific Advice

Hear from women in your Industry including tech, food, product innovation, e-commerce, fashion, digital, publishing, business services, importing and more. Hear from leaders in your industry and have the opportunity to ask them industry specific questions.


Content designed to fit around your busy life

We know how busy you are, so the core course content is available live and if you can't make it, we also record the video tutorials so that you can watch anywhere, anytime. Recorded content ensures that you won’t miss a thing and you can go back and rewatch the videos whenever you want to.

Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women that have her back

The Women’s Business School holds special live events including Masterclasses, Demo Days, Conferences and Retreats.

Why is this School so different?

This is the only program that gives you access to a stellar group of Australian and international successful female founders across a range of industries who you can connect with, learn from and be inspired by.

We know firsthand how frustrating it is to attend a conference, course or event where all the presenters and speakers are men, using examples of other men in business and quoting from books all written by men. We were tired of it and we knew other women were too so we’ve brought together some of the most incredible, passionate, knowledgeable women we could find. Female founders that you can relate to, who understand the challenges women face and are shaking things up in their industry right now!
