In Startup Victoria’s final event of 2018, they will be rounding off the year with a Pitch Night showcasing Female Founders! The night will bring together the best and brightest to support the next generation of female founders, and provide them with a platform to pitch their startups and promote their businesses.
According to Startup Muster, the share of female founders in Australia grew from 16.1% to 25.4% in the three years between 2014 and 2017. We want to see that number increase by even more in the next three years.
So this December, One Roof, MYOB, and Startup Victoria will come together to shine the spotlight on women-led businesses that are empowering the startup community. We usually have 4 startups pitch at these nights, but this time we’ll have 10. The startups will not only be pitching for the prize package below; they will also be pitching to a panel of expert judges and a room full of industry professionals.
The event will be an opportunity to network and connect with founders, investors and innovators within the community, and provide a night of inspiration for aspirational founders.
