Event information

Got a business or entrepreneurial idea you’ve always wanted to bring to life?

The AccelerateHER workshop is here to help. Canberra Innovation Network has partnered with The Accelerator for Enterprising Women to deliver a full day workshop designed to support you on your business journey.

The day will be led by three experienced facilitators:

  • Irene Zhen – Irene is an experienced innovation facilitator, service designer and entrepreneur. She designs and facilitates programs for researchers and entrepreneurs using lean innovation to take their project to the next level. Irene is passionate about helping companies make an impact through a customer focussed approach.
  • Hayley Maddox – Hayley is an experienced facilitator, leading the Idea to Impact workshop series for early-stage startups. Hayley has a background in not-for-profits, including coordinating large scale events, managing teams and dance.
  • Hannah Hartgers – Hannah is responsible for the delivery of the Innovation Connect (ICON) grant and GRIFFIN Accelerator, helping to design and curate content for early growth stage companies. She is particularly experienced in assisting companies develop pitches for different audiences and helping connect founders with relevant resources.

Over the course of the day, you’ll get to dive right in and put pen to paper – in the area (or areas!) you need the most support. Our experienced facilitators will point you in the right direction with practical tools and advice. The day will cover:

  • Defining and validating your unique selling proposition
  • Financial modelling
  • Go to market strategy
  • Understanding target audiences
  • Pitch preparation
  • Plus everything you need to enter the Kickstarter Challenge for your chance to share in $60,000 in equity-free funding.

We’ll also make sure you have plenty of opportunity to connect with those in the room so you can build your community of female founders – for support, accountability, and maybe even some unexpected collabs.
