The awards, organised by One Roof, Sheree Rubinstein’s platform for entrepreneurial women, will honour the best and brightest across Australia, with the winner announced in Sydney on November 23.

The top 10 finalists score a one-year membership at One Roof, valued at $500.
Alongside the cash, with winner will receive a range of assistance and support, including mentoring sessions with Tracey Warren from F5 Collective, scholarship places at Press Play, the Victorian startup program for women, and a scholarship to Scale’s FoundEd online education program and a 1:1 call with the investment team, plus a free marketing audit with Stella Startups
Four finalists will pitch to a panel of guest judges, including Doone Roisin from Female Startup Club, who also offered to lend their expertise to the next generation of women entrepreneurs.
Rubenstein said Startup Women of the Year is designed to be “the ultimate anti-pitch focused on the essence of startups: to address and solve significant global challenges”.
