FOUNDER, WE HEAR YOU

Being a startup founder at any stage can be challenging, demanding and sometimes you can feel that it is a solo journey on a roller coaster.

You might be asking yourself, how do I reach customers? How do I get to product-market-fit? How do I pitch my startup to investors? Or where do I connect with other Founders, in the same situation?

Now, imagine having access to

 

  • A supportive community of female founders
  • Accessible startup coaching sessions - get your questions answered!
  • Exclusive learning workshops
  • Networking and inspirational events
  • Connections and introductions to programs, grants and investors
  • First access to apply for the 8-week Female Founder Startup Program

Whatโ€™s the difference between Female Founder Connect and Female Founder Startup program?

Female Founder Connect is a community built to support female founders, with startup coaching sessions, monthly Lunch & Learn sessions and engagement via a community platform. Female Founder Connect is a great way to start and/or continue to engage with the Tech Ready Women community before and/or after participating in the Female Founder Startup Program.

The Female Founder Startup Program is an extensive 8-week startup program, specifically designed to help test and launch ideas into the market. Participants join a cohort of 50 female founders to access exclusive weekly workshops, mentoring and office hours, 12-month access to world-class education materials, introductions to customers and investors. Female Founder Program Participants will also have opportunities to pitch and speak at Tech Ready Women events. This program is suited for those founders who are in the first 2 years of their startup journey. 

If Iโ€™m a member of the Female Founder Connect community, how can I get easy access to the Female Founder Startup program?

As a Learn member of the Female Founder Connect community, you will get first access to apply for the Female Founder Startup program. This means that we will have a minimum number of spots available from the members of our community to be part of the cohort.

Whatโ€™s a startup? And do you only allow tech startups to participate?

A startup is a company in the initial stages of bringing technology and innovative products or services to market in a new way.

This includes small businesses selling products or services online, an app to make people’s lives easier, a platform to help businesses be more efficient, and many others. The beauty of startups is that there are infinite possibilities to innovate and bring solutions to our communities.

We encourage startups in both technology and innovation to apply. We are looking for scalable startups, i.e. a business model that can increase revenue, without a direct increase in expenditure.

Whatโ€™s the refund policy?

Once your monthly or annual membership payment has been processed, Tech Ready Women will not provide a refund if you simply change your mind. Under Australian Consumer Law, you are entitled to a refund for a major problem with the product or service.

Female Founder Connect is supported by

Tech Ready Women respectfully acknowledges the the Gadigal people of the Eora nation,
Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live, work and learn.
