What's your advice for women who are considering applying for the program?
I definitely encourage them to apply and not be afraid to step out of their comfort zone. Sometimes we try to fit a 'box' and follow the rules we were taught from childhood. What we are often missing is trusting ourselves, our abilities and our intuition.
Connecting with like-minded women, receiving support from WICEF and being guided by my mentor was instrumental in overcoming self-doubts and trusting that I am powerful and creative in my true nature.
We rarely feel 'ready' to go to the next level so just do yourself a favour and apply for this program, I am sure you won't regret it! What's next for Eleven Store and how can the EnergyLab community help you?
ElevenStore is pursuing a couple of exciting opportunities utilising the sodium ion battery we are developing. We will continue to gather information and talk with our stakeholders with the hope that eventually ElevenStore can spin out from Deakin and scale.
If you have expertise in launching a cleantech business, creating sustainable business in Southeast Asia, or know someone who we should be talking to, we would love to hear from you!If you are interested in joining EnergyLab's Women in Climate and Energy Fellowship, be sure to fill out an expression of interest form.
