So you’ve got your big idea, but you’ve also got a few obstacles in your way…
Finding the cash required to get an idea up and running is often the biggest challenge a start-up idea will face, and many ideas will never come to fruition because of a lack of funding.
But what a lot of big thinkers and idea generators are unaware of is the huge list of federal and state government grants available to offset the costs of starting a business or getting an idea off the ground.
For example in the agribusiness and food sector alone there are more than 10 separate categories of grants and funding assistance available, offering anywhere from $10,000 to $1.5 million in funding.
Starting to feel a bit more positive about the prospect of getting your idea funded? Check out the links below to read more about all of the government assistance programs that could be accessible for your big idea:
- Agribusiness and Food
- Clean Energy
- Environment and Heritage
- Local Land Services Riverina
- Regional Infrastructure

- Sport & Recreation
