Run The World 2014

Australia's Largest Female Entrepreneurship Event

Venue Partnership 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.
