Boosting Business Innovation Program
We're supporting the development of regional entrepreneurship, small- to medium-sized enterprises and a networked innovation ecosystem in the Central West and southern regions of NSW.
Under this Program, the University is establishing work spaces to promote innovation, including startup hubs, incubators and accelerators.
The support of the NSW Department of Industry has been integral to development of three unique and highly focussed incubators – each designed to support greater collaboration between the University and business communities.
The Walan Mayinygu Indigenous Entrepreneurship Pop Up Hub Program is bringing business masterclasses, practical workshops and networking to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and businesses across New South Wales in 2017/18.
CenWest Innovate aims to support the development of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Central West NSW, to encourage interaction between SMEs and the University, to support business innovation, and to encourage jobs growth in the region.
The AgriTech Incubator Hub aims to spark innovation and economic development in the Riverina by offering incubator programs, providing co-working spaces, fostering greater participation of women in entrepreneurial activities, and supporting SMEs to overcome R&D challenges through access to University facilities and expertise.
