Regional Expert in Residence

Get support in regional areas to help your business growCollaborate

The CBR Innovation Network & the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science have partnered together to help improve regional Australian entrepreneurs’ success in international markets.

The program focuses on growing regional businesses through;
• Easy access to resources
• Tools to help business growth
• Access to business coaches and mentors
• Training via the lean startup methodologies
• Networking opportunities and building local community support

It is important to encourage entrepreneurial talent and business success in regional areas. Prosperous regional communities means a more prosperous and socially vibrant Australia.

Regional businesses often don’t have ready access to the resources available in bigger cities. This program connects regional startups and businesses with a broad network of experts and related capabilities; and provide direct mentoring and coaching to help entrepreneurs in regional areas grow.

Experts work directly with regional entrepreneurs to identify and capture investment opportunities; and to build capability in their businesses around export growth. This will involve working with and supporting local businesses, business groups and councils so that together we can leave a legacy of better regional business support.
