Entrepreneurs’ Programme – Making the most of business opportunities.

The Entrepreneurs’ Programme is the Australian Government’s flagship initiative for business competitiveness and productivity.

The programme provides access to a network of more than 100 experienced private sector Advisers and Facilitators. The co-funded Business Growth Grants can assist to engage external expertise to assist businesses with implementing improvements recommended by the Entrepreneurs Programme Business Advisor.

The Programme offers support to businesses through three elements:

  • Accelerating Commercialisation, helping entrepreneurs, researchers and businesses address key challenges in the commercialisation pathway of bringing novel products, processes and service to the market.
  • Business Management, provides advice and facilitation services with a Business Advisor to improve business capabilities and networks.
  • Research Connections, helping small and medium businesses to access knowledge, engage with Researchers and foster innovation;

The Programme uses quality facilitators and advisers, drawn from industry, to ensure businesses get the advice and support they need to improve their competiveness and productivity. The primary focus is on providing access to the best advice and networks to solve problems rather than focusing on financial assistance.
