boost your business

8th November, 2019

Victorian businesses will have access to new opportunities to develop and grow with the opening of applications for the fourth round of the popular Boost Your Business Voucher Program.

The state government is calling on eligible small and medium enterprises to apply for up to $50,000 through the voucher program.

Eligible streams include:

  • Advanced manufacturing
  • Asia gateway
  • Defence, aerospace, cyber and security
  • Food innovation
  • Social enterprise capability
  • Victoria-Israel innovation

The program allows successful businesses to become more productive, improve market access, employ additional people, diversify and increase scale and profitability.

Wandin Valley Farms received funding through Boost Your Business and was able to accelerate its cherry sales to China. The voucher has resulted in multi-million-dollar export growth for the company.

Another business to have benefitted from the program is cafe and catering company STREAT, a social enterprise for homeless and disadvantaged young people that has used Boost Your Business funding to create training and employment pathways for people coming out of the justice system.

The first three rounds of vouchers provided almost $9 million for Victorian businesses, including $1.8 million allocated to support more than 70 businesses earlier this year.

Applications for the current round of the Boost Your Business Voucher Program close on 22 December.
