Leading tech and co-working hub, Tank Stream Labs today announced its annual Female Entrepreneur Week will be held from Monday 13 August – 17 August 2018, across Sydney and Perth.

“This week will build on the success of the 2017 Female Entrepreneur Week with the aim of bringing female leaders and start-ups together to share and learn from their unique experiences and build partnerships for the future,” said Iris Llach, Partnership Manager, Tank Stream Labs.

“We know that Australian female entrepreneurs are doing exceptionally well, but they still fall behind men in having access to capital investment. This week is designed to not only provide practical advice but identify further ways that Tank Stream Labs can support female entrepreneurs build strong networks as they go out on their own,” said Brad Delamare, CEO, Tank Stream Labs.

Only 3% of tech firms are founded by women, yet when funded they deliver 35% higher ROI than male led firms and the gender investment gap for women is equally alarming. According to global consultancy, BCG, when women business owners pitch their ideas to investors for early-stage capital, the disparity averages more than a million than men.[1]

“These figures demonstrate that we must do more to support, encourage and develop opportunities for female entrepreneurs. While we must make the entrepreneurial market more equal for women, it also makes sound business sense,” Brad Delamare said.

“As a leader in fostering the Australian start-up market, its vital that we can include presentations from more than 50 leading female voices who will share their experiences, challenges and practical advice for female entrepreneurs in Australia,” Brad Delamare said.

Start Up Muster’s 2017 Report revealed the number of female founders is continuing to trend upwards, sitting at 25.4%up from 23.5% the previous year. While there is growth we need to find ways we can support female entrepreneurs starting out in the Australian market.

“Tank Stream Labs is committed to supporting female entrepreneurs across the ecosystem, including through Triangles,helping women take their first step into entrepreneurship, Tech Ready Program, helping non-tech female founders validate their idea and build the first version of their product, and SBE Australia, delivery provider of the Springboard Accelerator for female-led companies,” Brad Delamare said.

The week will bring together women starting out, those who are building their venture and those that have had success both in Australia and internationally. Its vital that we can bring a a diverse range of women together to connect and provide real world advice so we can continue to boost the number of Australian female entrepreneurs,” Brad Delamare said.
