Women in Innovation - Breakfast & Panel discussion with female founders

Since the 1960s and on, the benefits of increased participation of women in business has been the cornerstone of the development of an agile and innovative Australian economy. This breakfast is looking to unpack how women in business have made their mark on the Australian Business landscape and better understand the challenges facing women in today’s start up sector.

Attendees will be offered a light breakfast as well as the opportunity to discuss the challenges facing leading Australian female entrepreneurs today.
