GIRLEDWORLD - THE WEEKLY REVIEW STARTUP FINALISTS 2017

GIRLEDWORLD STARTUP STARS FINALISTS 2017

The pitch \ An education community that aims to help high-school-aged girls reach their full potential in areas including STEM subjects, business and leadership.

The story so far \ Co-founders Edwina Kolomanski and Madeleine Grummet met while studying at the University of Melbourne’s Wade Institute of Entrepreneurship. They talked about the challenges facing young women entering the workforce, and decided to create leadership summits and online educational tools to help.

“Girls can’t be what they can’t see, so we need to expose girls to female role models,” Edwina says. “Winning would help us digitise our enterprise, bringing it to girls around the world.”
