Grants Business General


Businesses throughout regional and remote Australia often face numerous challenges. Whether it be related to their relative isolation, or simply finding ways of promoting themselves – finding a path to success can be hard.

As the organisation behind Australia’s digital backbone, we decided to develop the Innovate with nbn Grants Program in partnership with the Regional Australia Institute (RAI). Now in its fourth year, the program will again recognise and showcase regional and remote businesses.

Who can apply?

We’re looking for digital businesses in regional and remote Australia who live and breathe technology and are:
  •    – Harnessing the benefits of the nbn network to enable regional Australians to live, learn and work in a digital society
  •    – Innovative digital businesses challenging traditional markets in regional Australia
  •    – Businesses who are lifting digital participation and stimulating regional economies
  •    – Champions of digital adoption for regional and remote communities

This year the Innovate with nbn Grants Program offers seven specific categories and an overall Champion award. The categories are as follows:

  •    – Health
  •    – Arts
  •    – Education
  •    – Agriculture
  •    – Tourism
  •    – Women in Regional Business
  •    – Indigenous Business

Applications are now open and close on 29 September 2023.
