Friends Who Are Going
Event description


If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.

WHERE: GARDEN STATE, The Observatory, 101 Flinders Lane, Melbourne VIC 3000

WHEN: Tuesday, 29th August 2017

TIME: 6.30PM - 8.30PM


The entrepreneurial journey is exciting, exhilarating and full of adventure. But the road to adventure can be a little rough and bumpy at times. There are so many things to think about even before you make your first sale or charge your first invoice. Often throughout the journey we are so focussed on our craft, that we neglect the basics of business that help grow and future-proof our businesses.

Yes, business process is a little unsexy and uncool, but oh so important for sustainability, both of business and to you personally.

Over the next few months, we are bringing you the ‘Business Series’ - a not-so-ordinary selection of business experts offering ideas, suggestions and how-to’s that you may not have considered.

TOPIC // Protecting Your Ideas - How to stay ahead of Copycats

You had an idea, something that filled you with renewed passion and fire in your belly. Something you thought really could work and you had no choice but to pursue it. You’ve spent everything you’ve got (financially and spiritually!) building this idea into a business. What if someone stole this idea, would your business survive? What if your caffeine addiction, late nights and aching in your mouse-using arm were for nothing? It doesn’t bear thinking about.

Intellectual property (IP) refers to new or original creations of the mind such as ideas, inventions, words, phrases, symbols and designs. These creations can have a commercial value for your business, forming a vital part of your Unique Selling Proposition so it is important you protect them. From trade marks, patents, copyright, design rights through to domain names, our speakers will hare their first-hand experiences and give you tips to protecting your ideas

SOME RULES we’d like to point out.

1) Tickets are $20 (+booking fee), or free for League members. Now, it goes without saying that the free tickets are for League Members only, so please only select that ticket type if you are a paying League Member – League membership is $15 per month, and gives you access to free Meet Ups in addition to loads of members only content on the members portal. If you’re not a member yet then you can join via the link below, or just purchase a ticket.


2) Please only register for this event if you plan on going. I know some people will grab a free ticket and then decide last minute that they’re too lazy to go – don’t be one of these people. If you commit to something, commit to it - we want to meet you!

3) If you’ve never been to a League event, there’s a reason why we don’t use the “N” word and use the word “connecting” instead. It's because of the negative connotation of soliciting, selling and business card swapping. Bleh, no one wants to go to an event to talk to someone for 20 minutes only to realise you’re being sucked into buying some powdered thick shakes. We are here to connect authentically and honestly – share stories and experiences, learn from each other and respect each other. Magical things WILL happen and people will seek you out to buy from you when you work from an honest heart space.
