ReferHer programme

What is the ReferHer programme?

Through the ReferHer initiative, Vista is inviting women-owned small businesses to apply to be part of an exclusive networking dinner that kicks off “ReferHer” and also nominate a fellow female small business owner from their community to join them. 50 applicants will be selected, 10 per country, along with their plus one, for a total of 100 globally. The ReferHer programme is offered in five (5) territories, in partnership with women-led co-working spaces including The Jane Club (LA), Mona by My Little Paris (Paris), AllBright (London), Make Lemonade (Toronto) and One Roof (Sydney). Each woman business owner will be empowered to the programme and can invite a guest (another woman small business owner) to this event.
