BUSINESS WOMEN TAKE CHARGE WITH NEW ONLINE NETWORK
The NSW Government today launched the Women’s Online Network (WON), Australia’s first online platform created by female industry leaders to champion and support women entrepreneurs through their business journey. Minister for Small Business, John Barilaro was joined by Minister for Women, Pru Goward to announce the network and said the NSW Government has been key in driving the online resource through the Women in Entrepreneurship (WiE) initiative.
“WON is a one-stop-shop connecting aspiring and existing entrepreneurs with the resources, knowledge and people that can help them create and grow their business to new levels,” Mr Barilaro said. “This platform is focused on increasing the participation of women in entrepreneurship, providing legitimate and rewarding career pathway regardless of location. “WON provides support at all stages of the business life-cycle, ensuring anyone who wants to start-up or grow their business can utilise this resource.
“The NSW Government is committed to delivering new opportunities and making NSW the easiest state to start and grow a business.” Minister for Women Pru Goward said this digital community for women will help encourage and empower more female entrepreneurs to start a business in NSW.
“We have a growing representation of women in entrepreneurialism, but there is more work to be done,” Ms Goward said. WON is an outcome from the Women in Entrepreneurship (WiE) initiative, which has been created to discuss small business barriers and assist female entrepreneurs with access to information and resources.
