In light of the challenging global circumstances, the program will be held via Zoom until it is possible again to safely meet in-person.

For women residing in Australia, with a focus on migrant women, the program will assist participants to turn an idea into a robust business plan and convert that business plan into an operating business model.

The program is delivered in partnership with TiE Melbourne, TiE Women Global, TiE Women, TiE Sydney, the Australia India Institute and the Australia India Chamber of Commerce. It will comprise of 6 workshops over 6 weeks and one-on-one mentoring with a TiE Member. The workshops will run from April to May 2021, leading up to an Australia Pitch finale to a panel of eminent entrepreneurs and judges.

A representative from the winning team will be invited to pitch at the global TiE Women finale, for a chance to win a US$100,000 cash prize.

TwE inaugural program ran last year in 2020, with the winning team pitching at the TiE Women Global Pitch Finale in early 2021 in Dubai.

Applications close on Thursday 25 March.
