EMDG Update in December

We would like to update our valued clients and business owners on the latest developments in the Export Market Development Grants (EMDG) program, based on the recent newsletter from Austrade and our own insights as Australian grants specialists.

What’s Next for the EMDG

For over 20 years, Vebiz has been your go-to for help with the Export Market Development Grants (EMDG). This program started in 1974 but it’s been changed a lot recently. So, what does this mean for the Aussie export support scheme? Why are we forgetting how good this program is?

Submission for Austrade Strategic Review

Experience is a keyword in understanding what has gone before and what can come. I have dealt with over 300 exporters in my time as an EMDG consultant, across a wide range of industries, organisational structures, business sizes, and unique marketing ideas.’ After seeing the first attempt at “reforming” the EMDG, it would appear that Austrade has lost all its experience, forgetting the past (what works) and forgoing any idea of what can be successfully made for the future.

Balancing the Scales

Navigating the intricate realms of technology, innovation, and grants often involve crossing the blurred lines between global commerce and national interest. An ongoing debate surrounding programs like Australia’s Accelerated Commercialisation throws light on the current direction, impact, and potential repercussions of the program’s structure.

The Abrupt Cancellation of the Minimum Viable Product Grant by the NSW Government: A Case of Poor Governance

Such decisions may stem from ideological differences or budgetary constraints. However, the cancellation process should ideally be handled with due consideration and transparency, ensuring that applicants are given sufficient warning and their efforts are not in vain.
