The Women’s Business School Scholarship Program provides real training and support for women in business. This program provides opportunities for women to be able to develop their business skills, connect with fellow business owners and gain advice and inspiration from successful female business experts.
Since 2009, we’ve been connecting new and emerging female entrepreneurs with experienced businesswomen. We have developed an incredibly supportive, generous and uplifting online community of women who help each other to gain new referrals, avoid mistakes, solve problems and take their businesses to the next level. You’ll discover a tribe of entrepreneurs to travel with you and help you to navigate the ups and downs of your business journey.
We are proud to have over 200 graduates of The Women’s Business School and our alumni companies include Dinner on the Table, Serenity Press and Jellystone Designs.
COMMITTED TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION The Women’s Business School has been designed to support and increase the growth of successful and profitable businesses run by women.
Statistics show that women, particularly women from indigenous and multicultural backgrounds, and those based in rural, regional and remote locations, don’t participate in accelerators at the same rates as men. We are committed to ensuring that women from a diverse range of backgrounds have access to world-class education, peer connectivity, mentoring and support in a professionally challenging but safe and welcoming environment.
The Women’s Business School is committed to having an impact on diversity in entrepreneurship through leadership on this important issue. Through our network of women we aim to reach women from rural, regional and remote areas as well as women with indigenous and multicultural backgrounds and provide better opportunities for these women to participate in our programs and create successful businesses.

‘When I began to embark on the journey to start my own business I was so overwhelmed with where to begin. There is so much information out there to help but how do I find the time to research while looking after 2 kids and still working. When I came across a Facebook ad introducing the Women’s Business School I had a ”oh my” moment.When I looked further into it I could not believe what the course described, its values and its modules. I was so excited because it had a module that taught you ”Time Management” around your business and your family. That’s when I had another moment and realised that this was meant to be. I have no regrets and I have learnt all the essential key components to setting up, running and sustaining my business.The support factor astounds me and I’ve made life long friends along the way too. This is not only a school it is a community, one that understands you not only as a student but as a mother, wife and entrepreneur’. Thank you for supporting me and showing me the skills to go one step further and be a entrepreneur’.
