ACRE and SecondMuse are delighted to announce and introduce the Innovators who will join our Breakout Accelerator.

We co-developed this program to help unearth, connect and support innovators who are striving to build and scale dynamic, creative and sustainable businesses in places and communities they love. A key point of difference with this dedicated rural accelerator program is that we’re not asking innovators to leave home behind as they build their business.

Some 43 diverse and vibrant businesses from southern NSW and rural Victoria applied to join the Breakout Accelerator. After a rigorous selection, interview and shortlisting process, we have selected ten Innovators for the program.

We look forward to matching the business needs and supporting the goals of these Innovators by finding and bringing national and international networks, experience and expertise to the doorstep of each business, commencing with an immersive forum and networking opportunity at the Old Beechworth Gaol in late November 2019.
