WHAT ARE OFFICE HOURS?

Office hours provide time for 1:1 coaching, where you can workshop a business problem or refine your pitch with the help of a leading VC. Our goal is for every woman to leave armed with some practical advice and a handful of friends that they can add to their network.

Office Hours launched as an initiative to celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th. The first session will take place in Sydney, followed by Melbourne. 

Before Office Hours, we will also hold small group learning sessions to dig into common problems founders face. In Sydney, we are rounding off the Office Hours session with drinks to celebrate International Women's Day, to which all are welcome. This event builds on the efforts of women and men in the Australian ecosystem.

The series is co-hosted by Australia's VC community.

We know that tech suffers from a lack of diversity. We specifically encourage women from minority communities to apply. 

WHY OFFICE HOURS for women-led businesses?

In Australia, women receive about 26% of VC money. While this is significantly higher than the international average of about 12%, it is still well below parity. We want to increase the number of successful women-led businesses. By collaborating together, we believe that creating a community of women helping women will speed up the pace of change in Australia, for the benefit of all.
