Fearless Innovators Grant

Funding to support innovative businesses founded by women

Applications are now open for the Fearless Innovator Grants program to help innovative South Australian women access the capital they need to grow their business into national and global enterprises.

Recognising that women consistently report hardship in accessing the capital required to start and scale their business, this program gives women the opportunity to realise their ambitions and bring their innovative business ideas to life.

What is the Fearless Innovator Grant?

The South Australian Government has committed $110,000 from the Research and Innovation Fund, to be facilitated by Women in Innovation (WINN) in partnership with the Fearless Females Network (FFN).

The program will award grants to female founders through two streams:

  • Accelerate – up to $10,000 to accelerate a business
  • Scale Up – up to $30,000 to scale up a business

How to get involved

Program applications are now open to innovative women-led South Australian businesses with a high potential to scale into new markets.

Grants will be awarded at the annual WINN Awards in November 2024.
