“In Australia, the number of female-run small businesses has grown by 46%, which is almost double of that to men over the same period of time. Women might be more cautious in seeking finance for their business, but when they do, watch out … they are very serious about expansion and growth. Women see problems and create opportunities to fix them.”- Kate Carnell, Ombudsman -
“Whether it's spoken, unspoken, recognised, or ignored... the bias is alive and as a female founder this is unsettling.”- Kendall Flutely, Banqer -
“The mix matters! Companies should adapt to the diversity of their customers.”- Miriam Wohlfarth, RatePAY -
“Female-led businesses are not just companies that commercially outperform competitors, these are companies driving fresh perspective and positive change. It's important they have access to the finance they need to build successful businesses so others can take their lead.”- Shahirah Gardner, Finch -
“If women-led companies cannot access finance, it is not just a human rights deficit, it’s a huge economic opportunity lost as well. Women are not a niche market. Investing in women-led companies reaches women’s needs in the way women need.”- George Mcencroe, Shebah -
“Often finance is the life blood of start-ups and young businesses. To think that finance is less accessible for women founded/led companies is extremely concerning - it means that we are potentially lacking in diversity of ideas and concepts that are making it to the consumer.”- Kendall Flutely, Banqer -
“Finance should be accessible to anyone with a compelling case for help.”- Ruth Hatherley, Moneycatcha -
“Tragically, gender bias continues to inform poor decision making and there is no utility for these traditional views to pervade any business funding decision. In allowing this to prevail, we are at risk of missing out on up to 50% of the innovative potential around us.”- Siobhan Hayden, HashChing -
“The pace at which women are starting businesses is accelerating and we need to keep up with this momentum and support this shift with greater awareness of the financial support available.”- Bianca Hartge-Hazelman, Financy -
“Don't ignore the unique value of women-led business, we're a rare commodity and rareness brings value.”- Andrea Myles, CH/AU Millennial Project -
“Requiring funds to start or grow a business is certainly not unique, but how you overcome this challenge can be your competitive advantage. Take risk and commit yourself.”- Charlotte Petris, Timelio -
