THE SEED SCHEME GOALS
Our goal is that through training, mentoring and community support, every online micro-enterprise Founder achieves:
- Clarity in her vision and ambition, in her product/service, in her financial goal and profitability, in her marketing and sales processes,
- Confidence in herself, to take her product/service to market, in her ability to succeed
- Connection to the tools and training she needs to achieve her goals, the technology required to take her product/service to market and manage it effectively, to other micro-enterprise Founders for mutual support, advice, collaboration and encouragement, connection to Sponsor Partners and their extended network
We expect, from the work we’ve been doing with women in business for the past 4 years and from ATO data, that the average first year annual turnover will be $35,000 with turnover ranging from $15,000 - $55,000.
Our goal will be for 60% of Founders to achieve average or above turnover goals with profitability as a core focus. With a scaffolded support and education approach, we expect that a percentage of our micro-enterprise Founders will go on to become small businesses
and a further percentage will become medium businesses which will see the economic and social impact of this Scheme expand exponentially in years and decades to come.
Our goal for Sponsor Partners is that they are connected to the direct economic and social revival of Rural Australia through the seed-funding they provide, and achieve a meaningful connection to a group of motivated and successful community of rural women and are able
to capitalise on that for their unique needs and outcomes.
