New scholarships on offer for women starting a business

It’s a good time in the start-up scene with these business scholarships for women.

The Women’s Business School is offering $180,000 in full and matched funding scholarships to deserving women starting a business this year. The Women’s Business School is offering two Full Scholarships and five Matched Scholarships for each city (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Newcastle, Cairns, Townsville and Perth). The total of $180,000 in scholarships is being broken down into 16 Full Scholarships valued at $5000 each and 40 matched funding scholarships of $2500 each.

The Women’s Business School IGNITE program is a six-month online course designed to give new and aspiring business owners the business acumen, financial literacy, strategies and support they need to create a successful and profitable business.

The Women’s Business School co-founder Peace Mitchell says, “We are committed to inspiring women to reach their full potential by connecting them with the support they need and the education and skills required to build and grow a successful business.”

This is the program we wish existed when we were starting out. It contains everything new business owners need to succeed including, a one day workshop in each capital city nationally, monthly group calls, weekly video masterclasses, inspirational interviews, local meetups and an online mastermind group. The teachers and mentors are all accomplished businesswomen from a range of industries.”

Two of the most challenging things in life are having a baby and starting a business. Australian women in their thousands are doing just that. Women are starting new businesses at around three times the rate of men. The Women’s Business School Scholarship Program provides real support for women in business.

This program provides opportunities for women around Australia to be able to develop their business skills, connect with fellow business owners and gain advice and inspiration from business experts. The program contains everything new business owners need to succeed with a one-day workshop in Cairns, Townsville, Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, monthly group calls, video masterclasses, inspirational interviews and an online mastermind group.

The Women’s Business School is now accepting applications for scholarships and enrolment. The 2017 intake commences in February. For more information go to
