After a bootcamp and input from the public through an open voting process, the 10 women-led startups taking part in the first SheStarts accelerator program have been revealed.
To explore the path forward, MYOB has partnered with Startup Daily to host a panel on women in tech at the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre at the University of NSW on November 24.
Social Qs, a team looking to help men understand and develop empathy for the lived experiences of women in the workplace through VR and gamification, took out first prize at the Australian leg of the LadyProblems hackathon over the weekend.
BlueChilli has officially launched SheStarts, its accelerator program for female founders. Ten women will be selected to take part in the six month program, set to run from January next year, with each to receive $100,000 in pre-seed funding.
BlueChilli has announced it will be hosting the Australian leg of the Lady Problems hackathon this October, an initiative launched by AngelHack addressing the problems that prevent female entrepreneurship.
Today BlueChilli has appointed Nicola Hazell as the new head of diversity and impact to push for equality and social innovation in Australian startups.
