Ombudsman asks female SME owners and leaders to share their experiences

Boosting Australia’s economy through female entrepreneurs -insights from women business owners and leaders sought.

In a bid to support and encourage female entrepreneurship in Australia, women who currently own and lead businesses are being asked to share their experiences.

The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman has released a survey aimed at identifying any unique challenges and opportunities faced by women who own and lead businesses.

The findings will be used to consider how we can create the best possible environment for women to start, grow and run a business in Australia.

“97%+ of women owned and led businesses in Australia are small businesses, and small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy,” Mr Billson said.

“Research* has found that boosting the number of women entrepreneurs could contribute between $71–$135 billion to the Australian economy and up to $7 trillion globally.

“I encourage women business owners and operators to complete this survey so we can harness opportunities and look at how to address any needless headwinds or obstacles to their success.”

The confidential survey Is open until 19th October 2021. It can be accessed by visiting the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman website at www.asbfeo.gov.au or directly at: WOWL survey
