Applications closing soon for Innovate with nbn® Grants Program

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.

It’s through these times of adversity that many of these businesses have found not only a deep resolve and determination, but a vast amount of innovation and creativity.

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 third 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 program will award one grant of $15,000 to an organisation or business project aligned with each of the above categories. Additionally, one regional/remote business will be recognised and awarded with the ‘Innovate with nbn® Champion award’ worth an additional $20,000. Keep in mind that you can only apply to one category and you’ll need an Australian Business Number (ABN) to qualify.

Applications will close midnight Sunday 20th November 2022.

Successful Grant recipients will be announced February 2023.

If your application has been successful, we’ll contact you to discuss next steps and when the winners will be announced. If you’re not selected for a grant in one of our designated categories, we’ll email you a notification in the new year to let you know.
