$500,000 available to accelerate region's businesses into new markets

Austin Evans, Member Elect for Murray, has encouraged local businesses to apply for the new $500,000 Murray Darling Regional Business Accelerator Program, set to help companies leverage new marketing channels and expand into new markets.

Mr Evans said the NSW Government program will provide matched funding of up to $10,000 for projects including website development, digital media campaigns, or new product packaging.  “This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses in the Murray electorate to expand their reach into global markets,” Mr Evans said.  “There are many companies who want to take the next step and market their product to new audiences but simply don’t have the financial ability.

“Whether it is the website you’ve always dreamed of or building a marketing strategy to target new audiences, I’m excited for our local companies,” Mr Evans said. The program also supports traditional expansion methods, such as exhibiting at trade shows and multi-channel advertising campaigns.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW and Small Business John Barilaro said technology is a game-changer for local businesses and it is important companies make the most of this funding. “New technology opens the door to endless opportunities and this program will help businesses access new channels and grow rapidly,” Mr Barilaro said. 

The program is open to eligible businesses that can demonstrate growth potential beyond local markets and are not solely reliant on local markets for sales. The Business Accelerator Program is funded by the Commonwealth Government’s Murray Darling Basin Regional Economic Diversification Program, which is administered by the NSW Government.
