Export Grants Now Open for SA Businesses

The sixth round of the South Australia Export Accelerator (SAEA) program is now open for businesses ready to grow their market reach internationally and expand their local workforce.

The SAEA program has three types of grants designed to assist South Australian businesses to export for the first-time, enter into new markets or to grow their international exports. 

Minister for Trade and Investment David Ridgway, said the SAEA, now in its second year, has helped 80 businesses with their export efforts, covering a broad cross-section of sectors including food, wine and agribusiness, creative industries, hi-tech, health and medical industries and education.

The SAEA has three components aimed at helping South Australian export-ready companies to enter new international markets and to create jobs for South Australians:

Emerging Exporter – Grants of up to $5,000 are available to South Australian businesses that are exporting for the first time.

Export Accelerator – Grants of up to $30,000 are available to help fund business expansion that will create multiple direct ongoing jobs.

New Market Entry – Grants up to $15,000 (per market) are available for mature export companies, to help fund business expansion into new international markets.

South Australian businesses looking to apply for one of the three grants on offer, can do so by visiting www.dtti.sa.gov.au/saea and submitting an online application. The sixth funding round of SAEA grant applications will close on Friday 6 March 2020.
