Business innovation in the North-West has been given a boost with almost $200,000 in grants from the McGowan Government's Regional New Industries Fund.

The latest grants from the fund have been awarded to two recipients to drive innovation and economic diversification in the Kimberley, Pilbara and Gascoyne.

The grants are designed to accelerate small to medium enterprise growth and economic development in the regions, where scale and diversity are limited.

The WEB Business Hub and Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce will receive $100,000 to develop a 'shark tank' program to foster innovation and assist new emerging business enterprises in partnership with Pilbara innovation hubs and chambers of commerce in Karratha, Hedland, Newman and Onslow.

Impact Seed will receive $92,000 to develop a pilot to incubate emerging and Aboriginal social enterprises in the West Kimberley and the Gascoyne.
