Introducing F4:
Flying Fox Female Founders Program

Supported by


Flying Fox Ventures are proud to be launching our inaugural pre-accelerator program focused on female founders in Victoria. 


We’re on a mission to:

  • Increase the number of female founders launching companies in Australia

  • Increase the quality of female founded businesses to ultimately:

  • Increase the number of deals into female founded businesses and increase the quantum of capital raised by female founders


Because while 38% of our capital is behind female founders currently, we recognize that female founders face unique challenges and barriers in accessing funding and resources. By establishing a program specifically tailored to support and uplift women entrepreneurs, we aim to level the playing field, nurture talent, and unlock the untapped potential of female-led startups. 


Give us one evening a week, for 1 quarter, and we’ll get help you catalyse your journey to starting a company.  We’ll get you in a small, tight-knit cohort of other like-minded, crazy-ambitious founders to take your idea from a shower thought to VC pitch-ready polish.


Together we’ll be tackling topics like: 

The Founder Mindset, Problem Validation, Customer Research, Customer Driven Product Design, Building an MVP, Testing an MVP, Choosing a business model, KPIs and metrics, First key hires, Go to market strategy, Fundraising, Pitching, Term sheets & Legals


We’ll also give you 6 months of mentoring once the 12 week program is over.
