Groundswell is a program to grow the number and impact of high-impact ventures in the Mid West. Groundswell brings together two audiences:

  • High-potential ventures, who benefit from a structured investment-readiness program,
  • Investors, who benefit from warm introductions and education about Mid West investments.

Groundswell will be piloted in 2016 as a series of workshops for both audiences, culminating in an event on Friday 9th December.

Groundswell is a response to the lack of structured business support for high-potential organisations i.e. organisations with $200k-$2 million turnover whose next phase of growth is likely to involve creation of 5-10 jobs. Currently, SMEs are generally well-served by Pollinators, MWCCI, Business Local and commercial support services. While together Pollinators, MWCCI and Progress Mid West have the networks and some of the expertise, neither are sufficiently resourced to deliver structured, intense programs to these target market.

Groundswell is so named because our region needs a means to build a ‘groundswell’ of support and create the ‘wave’ of momentum for those high-potential organisations.

Further details on Groundswell are being confirmed.

The original concept was developed in 2015 as described here:
