Inaugural Regional Growth Summit

September 3rd 2019, 10:00 - 3:00pm

Marketing Entourage are delighted to be organising the Regional Growth Summit 2019, an event designed to support and empower startups, scale ups and small businesses based in regional Victoria. The key challenge for business owners is how to create and maintain a healthy and sustainable business. Running your own business is never easy, and the challenges increase when businesses are based in regional Victoria and have limited access to educational and interactive events due to their location.

What is it and who is it for?

Businesses in Melbourne are saturated for choice, so the goal of the Regional Growth Summit is to help balance that playing field, support community engagement, and develop lasting economic strength for regional Victoria. The goal is to teach business leaders how technology can create a positive impact on their business, saving them time, money, and resources in the long-term, enabling them to focus on their core skills.

  • This is a virtual event which allows it to be accessed by any startup, scale up or small business across the State

  • In addition, it will also be hosted as a physical event as part of the Bendigo Invention & Innovation Festival (BIIF)

  • It can also be attended at Community Connect hubs hosted by local councils for other regional centres

  • It will educate and support those who are curious about the benefits of digital

  • It will give you the opportunity to hear about key technologies that will help you be more efficient and support you to grow your businesses.

  • You can hear from leading technology companies, such as HubSpot, Xero, and Spotify on how you can use their technology to help your business

  • Be inspired to make small changes for maximum impact for your business

In partnership with the Bendigo Invention & Innovation Festival and the Digital Innovation Festival

This online series is aimed at regional small business with various degrees of digital competency.  Whether your digital offerings are just a website and Facebook page for your business or whether you have data-driven workflows and automation, this series is aimed at helping you maximise customer relationships and minimise your time working on your business.
