Heads Over Heels’ mission is to increase the representation of women entrepreneurs leading high growth businesses. The key work of Heads Over Heels is aimed at increasing the representation of women entrepreneurs leading high growth businesses, and to thereby reduce gender inequality not just within the entreprenueral space, but across all of society.
Heads Over Heels works with Connectors and a select group of CEOs to provide access to the strategic networks required for growth. In Australia, women are starting businesses at the same rate as men*. However, statistics from around the world show that women-led businesses do not scale anywhere near the same rate as male-led businesses.**
To help address this imbalance Heads Over Heels focuses on one of the most important pre-determinants of business success – an entrepreneur’s access to critical business network connections. Heads Over Heels selects and develops outstanding women CEOs by offering them game-changing connections which lead to meaningful impact.

We develop outstanding women CEOs. We begin with a rigorous process that selects talented women running growth-oriented companies.
We work with the CEOs to identify critical introductions that have the potential to greatly accelerate their growth.
The CEOs we select become role models to encourage other women to follow their own entrepreneurial path.
We bring together a group of Connectors who can make Game-Changing introductions. Our Connectors are senior business and community leaders. They share a passion for supporting women entrepreneurs and making targeted introductions to their valuable networks. Our model creates an efficient way for Connectors to quickly make a big difference.
By having more men and women understand womens’ unique set of challenges when scaling their business, we change the community’s support and perception of women leading their own businesses.
We focus on connections that make meaningful impact. Since 2010, more than 30 women CEOs have been selected by Heads Over Heels with more than 1,700 high impact introductions made. In addition we strive to:
"We met our Series A investor and new Board member - Richard Enthoven representing Hollard Investments - through presenting at a Portfolio Event last year. This is not just great for us but great for all women founders in Australia."
"Heads Over Heels directly me raise my seed round and introduced some incredible advisors to me."
“I received some amazing introductions at the June 15 Portfolio Event and have started the sales process with EY, CBA, J&J, AMP, Virgin & Westpac - if even a few come through, its potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue, and 1000s of empowered women working for employers committed to driving social change."
"Heads Over Heels helped close my seed round with people who were aligned with my business and brought in ANZ and PWC as clients - likely to bring in over $100,000 worth of revenue."
“I asked for introductions to customers and kicked off my Series A at the June 15 Portfolio Event – so far I have had some amazing discussions with The Commonwealth Bank, Macquarie Group and Amazon Web Services about investment and use of my product."
