Region. EOI in cluster funding

The Minister for Small Business, Peter Primrose, has called for expressions of interest for the first round funding of the Strategic Business Cluster program , targeting eligible small-to-medium enterprises. “New or existing groups can apply for three levels of financial support ranging from $5000 for business networks to $30,000 for established clusters in matched funding to help achieve a common business objective,” Mr Primrose said.

Industries as diverse as clothing, aftermarket exhaust manufacturers, fashion designers, exporters to China and open-source software are examples of clusters supported under this program.
