Launchpad ready to boost Pilbara businesses

May 29, 2020

Pilbara entrepreneurs are invited to sign up for a series of free online learning programs to upskill in modern approaches to grow their businesses.

Funded from the McGowan Government's Regional New Industries Fund, Launchpad is a program developed by Pilbara Regional Innovation Network, which is led by Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce and The WEB Business Hub, and includes chambers in Onslow, Newman and Karratha and the Karratha Enterprise Hub.

Using the services of business accelerator Plus Eight, Launchpad will target existing small and medium sized enterprises and new businesses from across the Pilbara.

Registrations are being taken via local chambers of commerce with the first sessions due to start in June.

Following the workshops, participants will present their ideas to a local audience of industry, community and government representatives at an online 'pitch night'.

Pitch night winners will then present at a 'Regional Pitchfest' in Port Hedland later in the year.
