What's a Regional Globalisation Incubator?
Our definition is that a Regional Globalisation Incubator assists owners of new and early stage businesses in regional and rural areas to access business support to scale their business into global markets.
This Incubator, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, will work with twenty startup Founders in two regional locations over two years, to enable the development of global mindset, skills and capabilities to access international markets and improve chances of commercial success.
Who can apply?
In June 2021, Enterprising Partnerships will open Expressions of Interest for selection into the Regional Globalisation Incubator located in 2021 in Gippsland. The Incubator will begin on XXXXXXXXXXX
The focus of the Incubator is to assist Founders who are seeking to learn how to trade globally and potentially to export.
The Incubator is available to all Founders and people born overseas on all types of visas including business (refugee, family, spouse etc) and young people 15+ are encouraged to apply.
The Incubator includes the opportunity for those located outside Gippsland to also apply however due to limited numbers, priority will be given to Gippsland-based Founders.
If I put in an Expression of Interest, will I get a place?
We would love to have enough places in the Incubator for everyone who applies however this will be a competitive process which means some people will miss out.
There are a number of other startup programs happening around Gippsland so if you aren't chosen for the Incubator we will send you details so you can find out more about them.
