    Supporting another year of _SOUTHSTART

    The Department for Industry, Innovation and Science is proud to support another year of _SOUTHSTART –Australia’s leading event for the startup, tech and innovation community.*

    This year, the three-day event is expected to attract approximately 280 local and 300 interstate and international guests to the Garden of Unearthly Delights in Adelaide.

    To coincide with _SOUTHSTART are several new South Australian Government supports coming online for the state’s startup and innovation community, including:

    • A new Fearless Innovator Grants Program, awarding grants to innovative, female-founded businesses.
    • The Innovation Leaders Network, a platform to foster the exchange of knowledge and inspire collaboration between seasoned entrepreneurs and emerging startups.
    • Support for up to 10 South Australian tech businesses to join Tribe Global Ventures’ delegations to the US or UK, for a curated in-market experience to pursue business exports and/or expansion.

    This is in addition to the matched funding of up to $500,000 available through the existing Seed-Start grant program.

    DIIS is an exhibitor at today’s _SOUTHSTART Partner Bazaar. Attendees are invited to speak with members of our Innovation and Entrepreneurship team about these and other supports available to help South Australian entrepreneurs to start, grow and scale.
