How Gippslanders can connect and support each other

gippslandThere is a new player in town who is going gang busters in promoting and connecting local businesses.

In just 6 weeks 560 local businesses have connected with each other and posted 40 million dollars’ worth of procurement opportunities and 100 events.

And the good news is that is FREE marketing.

Gippsland Business Connect is a new online community where local business can connect to each other, access buying opportunities and find local events.

GROW Gippsland

Gippsland Business Connect is an initiative of GROW Gippsland and Latrobe valley Authority and is powered by Localised.

The concept was initially launched in Geelong during the closure of Ford manufacturing and Alcoa and since its conception it has created 300 jobs in the Greater Geelong Region and 50 million dollars in revenue.

Did you know that more than 80% of local businesses want to support other local businesses—but less than half of them actually do?
And the main reason why they don’t is that its hard to find a local and the purpose of GROW Gippsland is to help local businesses connect with each other.
