The ON Prime awards recognise excellent performance in bringing together and encouraging people in hands-on, practical learning and business model development.
WiRE endeavours to empower female entrepreneurs to achieve their start-up dreams and grow their business or community ventures without leaving rural parts of the country.
Weisner and her team have spent the last six months touring and working in regional Queensland, helping these entrepreneurial women create businesses and pursue their own initiatives.
Wiesner said it was a rigorous but rewarding process.
“That’s allowed us to develop our program to ensure it meets the needs of women in regional areas.”
WiRE is a collaboration between University of Southern Queensland’s (USQ) Australian Centre for Sustainable Business and Development (ACSBD), Queensland Rural Regional and Remote Women’s Network (QRRRWN), Startup Toowoomba and Fire Station 101 Innovation Centre.
