Women in Global Business (WIGB) is a national program that recognises women’s growing contribution to Australia’s economy through international trade.
The program is funded by the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) to provide support to women-led businesses seeking success in exporting.
Registrations now open for Winter 2015 intake
- “My goal is to move into China and I don’t know where to start.”
- “I want to become a market leader in international markets.”
- “Understanding how to finance international growth is important for my bottom line”
- “How do I go about opening an international store?”
- “How do I work on the domestic business and have time to work on growing it internationally?”
Sound familiar? If you have asked yourself these questions, the WIGB Mentoring program may be the solution.
WIGB Mentoring supports Australian businesswomen to grow their businesses internationally. The mentoring program is unique in Australia in that it is solely focussed on international business skills and capacity building for women business owners or leaders of enterprise.
Mentees are paired with women mentors who have many years of experience in international business across multiple markets and sectors.
Build your understanding of what is required, develop great connections and networks and receive invaluable support and advice.
To be eligible Mentees must be:
- over 18 years of age
- a WIGB member
- a business owner or leader in Australia
- registered for an ABN, and
- have a business that has a proven successful business concept in Australia and is over 3 years old.
Mentors must be WIGB Members and have a minimum of three years successful profitable export experience to qualify.
The program includes a minimum of one consultation per month for 10 months commencing July 2015. As this is a national program, participants are matched across State borders. Consultations are predominantly via videoconference, email or telephone with occasional face-to- face meetings.
