Next Stage Growth Program 2018

Next Stage Growth Program 2018CenWest Innovate, an initiative of Charles Sturt University and the NSW Department of Industry, is again offering a Next Stage Growth Program (NSGP) for businesses in Central West NSW throughout 2018.

This involves a six-month acceleration program for existing businesses wanting growth in sales, revenue, skills, people, knowledge, capacity, markets and more. The NSGP will get you working on your business, not just in it.

The program will run from 19th April 2018 – 5th October 2018 with regular meetups in Bathurst over this time.

Led by experienced leaders in entrepreneurship, marketing and managing the growth process, business owners will assess their core business strategies, mission, and growth expectations; conduct competitive analysis with real data – including opportunities and threats assessments; conduct market research and develop market strategies to target profitable growth opportunities and learn how to exploit digital and social media to build and manage customer relationships.

The Mentor Match up will identify and align you with a personal business mentor and peer to peer roundtable sessions create and develop a supportive cohort with other business owners from a wide range of business sectors and life experiences.

The program fee is $3000 per business, however scholarships are available for eligible businesses and application details can be provided upon request.
