Cases for female-founded startups
Powered by big data, Neighbourlytics gives developers real-time insights into the unique social identity of the neighbourhoods they plan, create and manage.
“We knew we had a great idea, but had no clue how to make it happen,” co-founder and CEO Jessica Christiansen-Franks says.
Christiansen-Franks and her co-founder Lucinda Hartley highlight that you don’t need to be a coder to start, run and grow your business, you just need to have a bold idea and a passion for what you’re trying to solve.
“Honestly, applying for SheStarts wasn’t something we’d really planned. We never considered ourselves a ‘tech startup’ in the early days, we were just trying to solve a problem,” Hartley says.
Bron.tech founder Emma Poposka stands by her vision that in the years to come data will be the most valuable resource in the world.
Her startup enables companies to access personal consented data with a superior level of relation accuracy.
Since graduating from SheStarts, Poposka and her team have onboarded 12,000 Bron users and more than 2.5 million data points.
One of the major challenges for any start-up is navigating through the world of capital raises, a challenge Poposka says was resolved through the help of SheStarts.
The most-useful agritech innovations will be those which come from farmers themselves, CEO and founder of FARMPay, Naomi Stuart says – because of their unique understanding of the issues they face.
“SheStarts enabled me to take FARMpay from ideation through to pilot. The program helps develop your business and give you the best chance to succeed.”
