BNI Sponsors Australia’s 1st National Female Business-Owners Poll



AWCCI research project sets to change how we do change how we do business

Whether you are a woman or a man – how the other gender does (and runs their) business affects us all.  Be it as competitors, colleagues, employers, employees, or consumers.  Each gender faces their specific challenges and opportunities in business.

Change Is In The Air

There are now more than 700,000 women-owned businesses trading in Australia – and twice as many women than men started their own business in the past year.  Also, the World Bank found that women generate a “higher return on investment”.  Yet, surveys and polls – and the policies, programs and support-structure they inspire – generally do not take gender differences and challenges (e.g. childcare and obtaining start-up funding) into account, and remain male-oriented.  That’s about to change – and it will only take 10 minutes.
