Rare Birds has announced the launch of a new edutech provider Phronesis Academy to help school kids learn about entrepreneurship. Seeing a gap in the teaching and value of VET subjects in school, founder of Rare Birds, Jo Burston aims to enhance the level and outcomes of school education.
Rare Birds Con will focus on the four pillars of entrepreneurship, which it calls getting in, growing up, getting on, and getting out.
Inspiring Rare Birds has announced the launch of its first conference, on Australian entrepreneurs doing business with the world. Announced as part of Sydney’s Vivid Ideas festival, the conference will draw together entrepreneurs and leaders across industry, government, and academia to discuss how women are doing business globally.
Rare Birds has launched an international Ambassador Program to assist women entrepreneurs around the world on their journey from early stage startups to global businesses.
At the recent Data Day event, serial entrepreneur Jo Burston went through the way her platform Rare Birds uses data to match mentors together with the right mentee.
A year to the day after its launch, Jo Burston’s Inspiring Rare Birds movement has taken another step towards achieving its goal of creating 1 million women entrepreneurs by 2020, celebrating Global Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) with the launch of a new book, #IFSHECANICAN.
There are a few mantras that Burston has integrated into the Rare Bird culture such as ‘If she can, I can’ and ‘You’ve got to see it to be it’ – but for me the stand out attitude is this concept of ‘Think Big, Ask Big’.
Today, Burston is preparing to facilitate a movement – under the moniker Rare Birds.
The company, which will launch officially later in the year, states its own purpose “to provide every woman globally with the choice to be an entrepreneur.”
