1. THE BEGINNING
This innovation came to life when…
We wanted to meet more women in business! After running our own businesses, we knew there had to be other successful, extraordinary women out there and we went searching for them. On our journey, we discovered enough women craving connection and inspiration to sell out events, new cities and created a community of members who could help inspire each other as we become the largest groups for young female entrepreneurs in Australia.
2. WHAT & HOW
The purpose of this innovation is to…
Ban the word ‘networking’ and create unique and stylish events where female entrepreneurs can meet and create true friendships. We provide inspiring speakers and through their story help the dream of owning a business become a reality.
It does this by…
Through the talents of the best female entrepreneurs in Australia. We hold Showcase and Breakfast events on a monthly basis and provide our members unique access to these successful businesswomen.
3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS
This innovation improves on what came before because…
Women don’t work like men! We wanted something that suited a younger generation of women. Preferably women who like us like a good cocktail, a great black dress and high heels. Oh, and women who appreciate a true and honest story with no spin.
The benefits to the customer/end-user include…
A sense of connection, business advice, motivation and inspiration to help them create and grow their businesses.

6. DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY
