An essential pillar of the Northern Economic Plan is to stimulate new business activity and seed growth strategies for northern Adelaide businesses that employ less than 20 fulltime equivalent employees. The Small Business Development Fund was established by the Plan with an allocation of $10 million to support business start-up and existing business expansion.
Look North is the branding and promotional tool of the Northern Economic Plan which has been developed by the State Government in collaboration with the Cities of Port Adelaide Enfield, Salisbury and Playford.
Congratulations to those businesses within the City of PAE that have successfully applied for expansion grants, including Bowe Pty Ltd, Castech and Prospect Rd Day Night Clinic to name just a few. The funds will be used to expand the businesses and to create new employment opportunities in the region.
If you have a start-up business idea or employ less than 20 full-time equivalent employees, then check out the Small Business Development Fund information on the Department of State Development website www.looknorth.com.au
