Pollinators funded to help tourism businesses
Geraldton-based innovation hub Pollinators is first cab off the rank in a round of new grants to support innovation and jobs in the regions.
The $120,000 grant will help fund an eco-tourism business incubator to nurture businesses that promote the Mid West as an internationally-recognised tourism destination.
Regional Development minister Alannah MacTiernan said Pollinators received the grant to help start-ups, existing businesses and industry partners develop global and experience-based tourism opportunities.
“This project takes the Mid West’s natural advantages in eco-tourism – its stunning coastal attractions and ease of access for tourists – to create new job opportunities for entrepreneurs and local businesses in the Mid West,” she said.
