Tailored support for female business leaders
The South Australian Government is committed to creating a business environment in which gender has no bearing on the opportunities available.
Research shows women in business face different and additional barriers than men in business, which potentially impacts the number of women who choose to start their own businesses and how women may be able to run and grow your businesses.
The Women in Business Program is designed to give entrepreneurial-minded women every opportunity to pursue our goals, leading to a more diverse and inclusive business community.
The Women in Business Program is a four year, $4 million commitment to help South Australian women overcome barriers to success by supporting you in starting, running and growing your business.
