The Women in Business Foundations Program has marked a significant milestone, with 1,000 women signing up for support to start and grow their business.
Delivered by the Adelaide Business Hub, the Women in Business Foundations Program has attracted more than 800 women to participate in mentoring sessions and more than 400 women to participate in small workshops and forums to develop their skills across business management, finance and accounting, marketing, digital technologies and cyber security.
The Program has attracted a strong uptake from businesswomen across metropolitan and regional South Australia, including the Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island.
Women in Business Foundations program participant Bridgette Hasting, owner of Barossa Helicopters said:
“Through the Women in Business Foundations program, we learned how to run our social media with better engagement as well as how to build and maintain our website and online booking platform.
“Being a tourism business, we were also supported with strategies to market our business overseas.
“We truly believe that without the Women in Business program, we would not be where we are today. Our personal business commitment to the program has proved invaluable to us for our ongoing business success.”
The Women in Business Foundations Program is part of the SA Government’s $4 million Women in Business program.
