Regional Skills Network

Connection – Community – Skill Building – Advice – Support

We know that innovation builds our regional economy, businesses, and jobs, bringing in outside investment and growth. Our Startups want to take up opportunities and grow into what they can be. For our existing businesses, this is the time to shakeup, do things differently, renew, and think outside the square.

Our Startups and Shakeups asked for tailored support for their businesses, so we’ve built the
Regional Skills Network
to bring advisors to them on particular topics as they need.

The Regional Skills Network provides an opportunity for Advisors to share their skills and experience
with local Startups and Shakeups to foster their business growth.
Advising is a hugely rewarding activity for both Advisors and Participants.

Types of Support

Advisors through the Regional Skills Network will be offered to Startups and Shakeups in three formats;

          1. Individual Advice: One-to-one sessions with an Advisor and Startup or Shakeup
          2. Small Focus Group: Small focus group of Startups or Shakeups with a content expert or Advisor
          3. Creative Sprint: One Startup or Shakeup with a group of experts or Advisors generating ideas
