New Program Launched to GROW Wheatbelt Businesses


The Wheatbelt Business Network launched its newly released business growth programme, WBN Grow, at a function attended by local business people at the Corrigin Community Resource Centre on Wednesday 31st July.

The WBN provides valuable business advice, networking and advocation services to businesses throughout the Wheatbelt.  The WBN Grow Program, which aims to strengthen local businesses, has been made possible with funding through the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development’s Regional New Industries Fund and the Wheatbelt Development Commission’s Regional Economic Development Grants.

The WBN Grow Program is a tailor-made, one-on-one program designed for businesses looking to solve a business problem, expand, or embark on strategic planning. Businesses are guided through the process by a team of experienced professionals with wide and varied backgrounds.

Caroline Robinson, Executive Office of the WBN said of the Grow program, “WBN Grow is about growing our existing businesses in the Wheatbelt. We want to help progress them towards a strategic mindset, so they can ride the challenges of business and be ready for the opportunities”.
