Council of Small Business Organisations

The Accelerator for Enterprising Women is a nationwide initiative empowering Australian women to carve out their own career paths. The Female Founder Festival, a core component of the organisations services, offers exclusive workshops, panel discussions, and networking opportunities.

Supported through Catalyst Inspire funding, the WA Female Founder Festival is an initiative designed to bring together local female founders. The event included immersive VR sessions and workshops and was facilitated in a state-of-the-art venue to empower women and boost their confidence in entrepreneurship.


Over 100 female founders came together for WA Female Founder Festival hosted at The Hub, located within Bentley Technology Park. This included exclusive workshops featuring Caitlin Judd from lady-brains, valuable insights for a Kickstarter Challenge (with $60k equity-free funding available), and networking opportunities with both experts and peers.
