Federal Government Entrepreneurs’ Program

The Entrepreneurs' Programme is the Australian Government’s flagship initiative for business competitiveness and productivity.

It is a program that has been running for over 10 years (previously as the Enterprise Connect Program) and provides business support and up to $20,000 of matched government funding for manufacturing businesses that meet certain criteria.

The funding allows businesses to engage with experienced specialists to accelerate their development and growth. It is a highly successful program that continues to be supported by both sides of government.
