Are you a woman entrepreneur looking for resources and other support to develop your start-up?

The Expert FindHer Resources Directory is now available online.

What can I find in the directory?


The Expert FindHer Resources Directory contains information and tools to support women entrepreneurs, such as:

  • mentoring programs
  • networking opportunities
  • sources of funding or finance
  • business training
  • professional development

Why was the Resources Directory created?


The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER) partnered with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to develop this online directory. DISER undertook a nationwide consultation in 2019 which highlighted some key challenges experienced by women engaging in innovative entrepreneurship and growing start-ups. The top challenges shared included:

  • access to funding and capital
  • access to information, networks, mentors and support
  • lack of confidence

Together with the Boosting Female Founders Initiative, the Expert FindHer Resources Directory was developed to address these challenges and support women in their entrepreneurial journey.
