Boost your business voucher program for entrepreneurs with disability

The Andrews Labor Government is supporting businesses across the state to create jobs and new opportunities, with applications for the third round of Boost Your Business vouchers now open.

The Entrepreneurs with Disability Voucher Stream is a new initiative to support the viability, sustainability and growth of businesses run by people with disability.

Vouchers are available to eligible businesses across categories including Food Innovation, Advanced Manufacturing, Defence, Aerospace and Security, Social Enterprise Capability, Asia Gateway and Victoria-Israel Innovation.

The program allows successful businesses to partner with top universities and industry experts, to help them identify new export markets, explore research and development opportunities and make new products.

Each Voucher Recipient may be able to receive up to $25,000 under the Entrepreneurs with Disability Stream. Vouchers are used by Victorian businesses or organisations in exchange for services that will build their capabilities in three main areas:

  • Market Engagement – services to assist companies and organisations to identify and secure international market development and export opportunities.
  • Innovation – services to assist companies to develop or commercialise new products and improve process innovation.
  • Business Capability – services to assist companies to position them to support future growth.
