We have a range of ongoing programs that we offer our community of innovators, you can view them below.
One on one business advice for regional Startups, Shakeups, and Innovators.
The Skills Network is a chance for our Startups, Shakeups and Innovators to have access to our skilled regional Advisors.
If you are after either some specific advice, need some assistance to solve business challenges, want someone to brainstorm with or just someone to point you in the right direction, the Skills Network is for you.
Even better, you are able to access three free sessions through the Skills Network thanks to our local government partners.
Are you thinking about taking your idea and bringing it into the world?
You are in the right place!
Our Incubator takes expert knowledge that is practice-tested and delivers it to you in an interactive and application-based format. As a result, we will take your idea to MVP and the early stages of acceleration.
In the meantime, if you’re interested in a half day introductory ‘Bootcamp’ to kickstart your idea – just ask us!
We heard your responses in our Digital Confidence Survey and created the learning tool you asked us for.
Click Region inspires and educates small businesses to feel confident in the digital space: from simple skills like turning on Bluetooth to more complex matters like cyber security.
It’s an easy-to-navigate education hub with online tools and programs to grow your digital confidence and grow your business.
All delivered in short, sharp bursts (under 7 mins) so you can learn just what you need, when you need it, without leaving your business.
We also create bundles for organisations that want to offer Click Region access as a value add package to their businesses and members.
