Program objectives

  • Increase the number of South Australian companies exporting higher value export products and services
  • Increase the number of South Australian companies that are pursuing high growth through persistent and sustainable exporting strategies
  • Assist South Australian companies to expand exports in current and/or new markets to deliver a significant increase (impact) on export sales for South Australia
  • Increase access and utilisation of a suite of export services by South Australian companies.

Program structure

The Program will have three separate rounds, and each round is structured in three stages:

  1. Expression of interest (EOI) application
  2. Free business reviews to identify impediments to export growth
  3. Grant funding to address the impediments with bespoke services.

The first is a call for EOIs, which open Friday 20 November 2020, until COB Friday 11 December 2020.

Following the EOI closing date, the Department for Trade and Investment (DTI) will assess EOI applications and shortlist up to 20-30 businesses for them to go through free business reviews, which will be undertaken by an external provider. The aim of the business reviews is to identify/confirm each company’s impediments to export growth.

A report of business review results will be provided to each participant and will be used by DTI to select final Program participants of up to 10-15 companies to receive grant funding to address the impediments identified by business reviews and access bespoke services and support.
