Entrepreneurs' Programme

Innovative businesses looking to grow are the major beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s Entrepreneurs’ Programme.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia (CCI) works with the Government to help eligible applicants access grants pivotal to their burgeoning businesses.

Matched grants of up to $20,000 are available and you don’t need to be a CCI Member to take advantage of this FREE initiative.

When you sign up to the Entrepreneurs’ Programme you will receive an expert consultation where we will assess your business and identify areas of improvement.

Then we will find simple, smart and effective ways to address those shortfalls, including helping you access funding to achieve your business goals.

We can also connect you with major projects through the Industry Capability Network of Western Australia (ICNWA).
