X-TEND WA Round 2 is open

(On behalf of the State Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation [JTSI])

Round 2 of the X-TEND WA Program is open for applications, providing grants of up to $100,000 to organisations that help innovative Western Australian businesses become investor ready and expand their operations.

The program is part of Government’s $16.7 million New Industries Fund, established to help diversify the WA economy and create local jobs. X-TEND WA grants are open to training and education providers that can develop and implement programs that support WA start-ups, emerging businesses and small-to-medium sized enterprises.

Grants also support programs that educate investors about the potential of investing in early stage innovation, so they become ‘innovator ready’.

Applications are encouraged from organisations that are able to provide training programs to a range of businesses, as well as start-up owners of diverse backgrounds, to foster diversity and inclusion in the State’s business sector.

Applications close at 11am, Tuesday, 5 November 2019. For more information, visit http://www.newindustries.wa.gov.au/
