The ignite program helped us to really clarify our companies values, our “WHY” and who we were trying to sell to- our target market. We loved the coursework “creating a life you love” where we explored and visualised where we wanted to see the business and what our dream work days look like. We constantly refer back to these, especially if having a challenging day. We found the course content highly relevant, even though we were in the early stages of our business and loved connecting with other female entrepreneurs that have looked outside the box when it comes to developing their own businesses. Very inspiring.
It has given me the confidence to step out of my shell to pursue my dreams
Prior to starting the program, I was confident in the direction and plans I had for the business but I felt there was still something missing. I studied Marketing and Business Management at Uni, I’ve worked for major corporate brands, so I felt I had a good handle on my business. The program, however, really opened my eyes to the importance of looking beyond the business practicalities, that the way we think can really shape so much. It has given me the confidence to step out of my shell to pursue my dreams. I am training myself to rethink: instead of that voice saying “but YOU can’t do that” I quickly shut it down with a big loud “well WHY NOT? of course I CAN!”. I loved how the program was like a rewiring of the way to think about not just how I manage my business but also how I reflect on myself.
I really enjoyed all modules
There are so many things that I liked but the key highlight for me were the group coaching calls. I gained so much from hearing from the industry experts. I enjoyed their stories of success and the practical advice that they gave. I really enjoyed all modules but the best one was the Financial Abundance. I got so much from this module. I have set aside time every week to review my businesses financial position and i now understand all the “finance lingo” that was once a total blur. I know what I am spending and when I need to cut back. This module has been such a massive help.
A wealth of knowledge
The program speakers where inspiring, very approachable and came with a wealth of knowledge. The set tasks were relatable and assisted in developing ‘Kat & Fox’ further. I treasure the fact that I was pushed to address certain aspects I had neglected to do so prior to jumping in. The networking and contacts I made on the program have been invaluable to me even evolving into personal friendships! I would certainly recommend this course…. We all need a hand to hold at the start, as the first steps are scary. This course will assist in creating the right road map for you…with the added bonus of making new friends and contacts along the way.
The masterclass was so incredibly helpful to me in developing and managing my business.
The masterclass was so incredibly helpful to me in developing and managing my business. It covered all of the aspects I had been struggling with, providing clear and concise guidance. It also gave me lots of information I never knew I needed! I really loved the opportunity to meet and network with other awesome Women. Thanks Katy & Peace! Vanessa
"it’s given me the focus that I needed to propel my business forward"

Our vision is to create a global movement of high-level female entrepreneurs that support, guide and inspire, emerging female founders to become future world-class business leaders through education, mentoring and sharing their wisdom and experience.
Through The Women’s Business School programs, founders receive entrepreneurial education from a team of high-level experts and entrepreneurs as well as mentoring, advice and access to successful female entrepreneurs across a range of industries.
Each month there are live entrepreneur calls with successful business women, this is your chance to talk directly with industry leaders from a range of fields. Having direct access to women like this is one of the most valuable opportunities that being a part of this program offers that other programs don’t.
Designed with the needs of women in mind the delivery of this program is unique. All webinars, lessons and calls are recorded, we offer an online hub open 24-7 and core course content is available in video, audio or printable transcripts format. Providing access and inclusion and enabling founders to receive the support and guidance to succeed anytime, anywhere.
The Secrets to Success series features interviews with Australian and international female founders. Be inspired by the stories of women who started out just like you and have now become successful entrepreneurs nationally and internationally. Hear about the challenges they’ve overcome, the successes they’ve achieved and what they wish they’d know when they were starting out.
Featuring special guest entrepreneurs, our industry expert calls allow founders to talk directly with industry leaders, asking questions and gaining invaluable advice. These high-level female entrepreneurs support, guide and inspire emerging founders through sharing their wisdom and experience. Connection with entrepreneurs of this caliber is just one of the exclusive and unique opportunities this program offers.
The life of an entrepreneur can be challenging, there are obstacles and roadblocks all along the way. That’s why it’s important to have the support of a strong community who understand how it feels and are navigating the same journey. You’ll find a community that has your back, supporting you by providing referrals, offering advice when you have questions, elevating you in your time of need and celebrating with you when you’re finding success.
This powerful facilitated group call provides founders with a safe and supportive environment allowing them the opportunity to dive deeper into challenges they are facing, process new ideas and share honestly how they are feeling in real time. Part women’s circle, part mastermind group, the power circle is an unique opportunity for founders to connect with each other, share progress reports and gain invaluable feedback from the program director and fellow founders.
These programs have been designed to provide founders with proven practical strategies that can be implemented today. You won’t find hypothetical assessment tasks based on a sample start-up, instead all activities have been tailored for founders to adapt to their own business. We provide you with the tools, techniques and strategies to implement powerful marketing campaigns, analyse your finances, think strategically and create innovative ideas.
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.
