Office Hours, an International Women’s Day initiative
Some of Australia’s most prominent venture capital associations have banded together to show their support for female founders through a series of one-on-one coaching sessions on March 8, International Women’s Day.
Called “Office Hours”, the initiative will offer 20, one-hour slots to female founders in the Sydney area, inviting them to the Fishburners co-working space to receive advice and discussion from 12 women from Square Peg Capital, rampersand, Airtree Venture Capital, Blackbird Ventures, Reinventure, Blue Sky Ventures, Giant Leap, and Bailador.
The concept is being spearheaded by rampersand’s head of growth (and former StartupSmart reporter) Rose Powell and Square Peg’s head of community Imogen Baxter.
In addition to the one-on-one sessions on the day, the team will also host a number of group workshopping sessions, and the day will also finish with celebratory drinks, to which both men and women are invited to.
