Boosting Female Founders Initiative – Assistance to Promote the Launch
The Australian Government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER) is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the first round of the Boosting Female Founders Initiative (BFF).
Applications close on 14 April 2020.
The Australian Government has a total of $18 million over three years from 2020-21 to 2022-23 for the program. For this round, $6 million is available for grants between $25,000 and $400,000 to go directly to female founded startups. Competitive grants will be available for activities that support and grow a female founded startup, and support the startup to launch and scale into domestic and global markets.
Request for Assistance to Promote the Launch
DISER will be promoting the EOI with new content each week across Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and they would welcome you sharing these posts. DISER would also appreciate you advising your networks of this opportunity for female founders to submit an EOI.
