Aus’-India exchange program to take female tech talent global

A new scheme announced recently, sees Australian and Indian women entrepreneurs in cyber and critical technology with a chance to launch their businesses internationally under an exchange program backed by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and the Indian Government. The CyberTech Women Entrepreneur began its pre-screening of what could be the largest start-up pitch contest in the Indo-Pacific region in 2022. India has over 13.5m women-owned small enterprises, the largest in the world.  And here’s another stat, if 0.05% of these women entrepreneurs applied, the accelerator would receive almost 7000 entries, more than any other pitchfest.
