Fostering innovation, strengthening collaboration and supporting the creation of new opportunities is the focus of the Wodonga Innovation Program. To diversify, grow and develop your business change must be cultivated and supported.
Looking to leverage momentum from the Wodonga CBD redevelopment and Wodonga Digital Connectivity Strategy, Wodonga Council remain committed to driving business investment and innovation capacity in the region. In light of this commitment, Wodonga Council are co-funding the Wodonga Innovation Project with the Victorian Government, with Council contributing $150k and State Government contributing $300k of seed funding to this initiative over the next two and a half years.
The Wodonga Innovation Project will be completed over three years (2019-2021) and focus on developing a business innovation hub that is agile, self-sustaining, and above all, drives community objectives. To assist in the design and management of the Project, Council has engaged Delos Delta and the Canberra Innovation Network (CBRIN).
Delos Delta, CBRIN and Wodonga City Council will work collaboratively with the local community to deliver this project, with the ultimate goal of creating a self-sustaining innovation ecosystem that is run by the community, for the community.
The Wodonga Innovation Project (WIP) commenced a business accelerator program last Tuesday 27 April 2021 with 27 local businesses registering. We are pleased to see our local businesses eager to expand their concepts and learn from the team at Canberra Innovation Network.
