We’re marking International Women’s Day on StartupSmart by taking a look at the realities of female entrepreneurship in Australia.
As we explain today, women who start-up their own venture still face significant barriers, but the trends are moving in their favour and there are a host of networking and support groups to help them along the way.
Elsewhere, we profile Greta Oost, founder of 321 Water, to find out how crowd-sourced funding, a nifty plunging system and an appearance on ABC’s New Inventors show have built a very promising start-up.
Meanwhile, mentor Vicki Crowe outlines how you should handle staff probationary periods.
