Lack of finance and lack of access to funding to fuel innovation is hurting Australia’s regional and rural communities.
Australian regional communities are founded upon businesses and farming enterprises. A lack of business start-ups and barriers to innovation, hindered by lack of funding, impacts the broader community. An impending global food shortage and water scarcities are demanding more innovation than ever. Though our regional heritage is rich in agricultural traditions, our communities are not beholden to one industry, via imagination and innovation.
The implementation of new ideas leveraging digital, internet, technology has the potential to revolutionise regional communities.
