Our vision is to see a global community of 1,000,000 women entrepreneurs by 2020.

Our Mission

Our mission is to give every woman globally the opportunity to become an entrepreneur by choice.


When one woman travelled around to schools in Australia in 2013 and asked young girls what they thought an entrepreneur was, the majority of them had no idea. The very few that did answered, “a man”. Walking away from that determined to create change and opportunity for women in entrepreneurship; Jo Burston was that one woman, and now the Founder of Rare Birds.

“I want to see 1 million more women entrepreneurs within the next 10 years, globally.That is our mission at Rare Birds. We want to inspire women. We want to give current entrepreneurs a voice. We want to allow them to tell their story and share it with our global community, so that a few years from now, when you ask a young girl what she wants to be when she grows up, it’s not so surprising when she says she wants to own her own company or maybe even change the world.”
