Start-ups and small-to-medium sized businesses will be connected with qualified professionals, university resources and technology under the NSW Government’s $12 million Boost Program.
NSW Minister for Regional Development, Skills and Small Business John Barilaro said the partnerships will help build new incubators and adapt existing facilities so businesses and community can network, access information and share ideas in a collaborative environment.
Incubators are a physical space where would-be entrepreneurs can join forces with industry experts, networks and suppliers, who support them to make their business idea a reality.
“The NSW Government is committed to encouraging entrepreneurs and boost business innovation in the cities and regional NSW,” Mr Barilaro said.
“Start-ups are the future of the NSW economy and these partnerships are designed to help create new business ideas, new industries and jobs of the future.”
