NOGA EDELSTEIN (URBANYOU) JOINS SBE AUSTRALIA BOARD AS 2018 FEMALE STARTUP PROGRAM LAUNCHES

Noga Edelstein, co-founder of on-demand home services marketplace UrbanYou, has joined the board of SBE Australia, coinciding with an announcement from the not-for-profit organisation that women-led tech startups can now apply for its 2018 Springboard Enterprises Australia Accelerator.

The program, which is now in its sixth year, has places for up to ten high-growth, female-led companies seeking to build, accelerate and scale their operations.

According to Topaz Conway, Chair of SBE Australia, the program’s 45 alumnae have performed “far above the Australian norm”.

“With 85 per cent successfully raising capital post-program, we have seen $180m go to these women-led companies, had two ASX listings, and three acquisitions,” she said. “We know without a doubt that when women are adequately funded and have access to supportive networks they perform well – in fact, they outperform. Our program creates an environment that builds confidence, knowledge and connections that is life changing for women entrepreneurs and their businesses.” Read more
