Does the program have a cost?

No. All Global Sisters business education and coaching programs are completely FREE of charge, subsidised by generous philanthropic, Government and corporate supporters. There is no catch, ever.

Global Sisters Marketplace has no set up or monthly fees, there is 5% commission on sales and 2.4% payment gateway commission +30c per transaction.

 

How much support can I access?

Global Sisters recognises that businesses don’t happen overnight, great businesses can take time to start and gain momentum. In recognition of this, Global Sisters offers 3 years of free business support but you can stay part of the community and access content and events forever.

What can I expect Global Sisters to do for me?

Global Sisters can support you with access to quality business education, group and individual coaching support, access to tailored micro-finance and insurance products, access to an online e-commerce platform and can connect you into a community of like-minded business women.

What won’t Global Sisters do for me?

Global Sisters can open doors but you have to walk through them. You have to take the steps, put the systems in place, make the decisions and pay the bills, after all you are the business founder and owner.

While Global Sisters tries to profile businesses in our community, your business may or may not be profiled by Global Sisters in marketing materials.

How can you provide so much support at no cost?

Global Sisters is a non-profit organisation supported by generous organisations and individuals who understand that incredible things happen when you back women. Global Sisters operates a lean and efficient team, using technology to enable and amplify our support.

Survey data is important to us to demonstrate the impact of our support to our funders.

Thank you to our generous donors and supporters we are able to provide high quality business support at no cost to our Sisters (emerging business women).

What if I don't have a business idea?

What is the Global Sisters Marketplace?
How do I download the app to my phone or desktop?

Our App is a Progressive Web Application (PWA). This web-based software behaves like a mobile app, working on any device with a modern web browser like Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge. It offers features similar to native apps, such as working offline and sending notifications, and it’s easy to use across different devices.

How to Install on Android

  1. Open the PWA (sisters.globalsisters.org) you want to install in your mobile browser.
