What is Bega Valley Innovation Hub

How It Works

Our Process

New intakes start with a written application then those who make the cut move to our unique RISE program, culminating in a PITCH to your community to hone your skills. The RISE program is a deep dive into best practice to grow your business. 

The final step is graduation into the local economy as a well-prepared and sustainable business.

When we’re assessing your application, we’re looking for:

  • A scalable business
  • High-performance teams
  • Commitment to growing the Bega Valley ecosystem, and/or
  • Openness to feedback.

And from there, anything can happen.

Bega Valley Innovation Hub is the ideal place to take your business into a whole new stratosphere. Apply now and watch your business potential unfold.

The course has set me on a path to develop my project and future projects successfully. I feel that I have been ‘activated’ by the experience.
