Pilot SME Growth Program


The Pilot SME Growth Program is an ACT Government initiative aimed at driving small business growth and competitiveness.

It will provide skilled support for business improvement and promoting opportunities and innovation through collaborative opportunities, connections with research institutions and developing and commercialising new ideas.

The program is delivered on behalf of the ACT Government by the CBR Innovation Network.

Grant amounts

Before applying for a grant business must complete the free Business Review. This involves an experienced business advisor working with you one on one to understand and review how the business is run and to identify areas of improvement.

If you’re interested in implementing the recommendations in your Business Review you can choose to apply for the Business Improvement Grant.

The grant of up to $5,000 (excl GST) per business is to help reimburse your business for some of the costs of securing the expertise to make the recommended improvements. All funds provided in the grant will need to be matched dollar for dollar by your business.
