Run The World 2014

Australia's Largest Female Entrepreneurship Event

Gift Bag Sponsorship Opportunity

Who we are.

A small group of highly successful female entrepreneurs based in Melbourne who, in late 2011, began a movement, with the purpose to connect the extraordinary female entrepreneurs of the world.

In less than 2 years the League of Extraordinary Women has experienced phenomenal organic growth and has launched in 8 cities across Australia with plans to expand into the US and UK markets in April 2014. 

In October 2013, in conjunction with RMIT University, the League of Extraordinary Women hosted the first ever, all female, one day entrepreneur conference in Australia. 'Run the World' was designed to showcase the outstanding female entrepreneur talent within Australia and New Zealand, to give our speakers the opportunity to share and celebrate their success, and to inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs within Australia.

Over 250 young female entrepreneurs gathered for the 2013 'Run the World' Female Entrepreneur Conference to become a part of the powerfully influential community of women building within Australia, who are passionate and motivated entrepreneurs, inspiring each other to succeed while also participating fully in entrepreneurial communities world-wide.

'Run The World' 2014

In 2014, the League of Extraordinary Women  will again host the history making, 'Run the World' one day all female entrepreneur conference in Melbourne on Saturday 25th October.  This exciting and ground breaking event will showcase 5 outstanding female entrepreneurs to share their entrepreneurial experiences, to inspire and empower the audience of over 500 dynamic and driven female entrepreneurs.

The theme ‘Run the World’ is designed to empower, captivate and appeal to young females who are running their own businesses and are considering taking the leap of faith into the world of entrepreneurship. It provides them with an insight into what it takes to be an entrepreneur, how to get started and what challenges they will face on their journey.

The mission of the "Run The World" Female Entrepreneur Conference is to: 

  • Showcase the outstanding achievements of incredible Australian female entrepreneurs

  • To inspire and empower attendees to follow their dreams and aspirations through the experience and knowledge shared by the high profile guest speakers

  • Encourage young females to connect with each other at the event

  • To hold the largest and most monumental female entrepreneur event in the history of Australia to inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs.
