Business support for food, drink and agritourism businesses.

Seedlab Tasmania

November 2021

With support from Cradle Coast Authority, and funding from the State Government, Seedlab is thrilled to announce: Seedlab Sisters Cradle Coast will commence in early 2022.

The program will provide Inspirational Workshops throughout 2022 in the North-West, including King Island, to inspire, inform and connect women who are passionate about agri-food, with the tools to help them develop their ideas, know where to start, and support them to build diverse businesses. Three Seedlab Tasmania Bootcamp programs will enable around 100 women to dig deeper, grow their confidence, and flourish, fostering a supportive community of women.

The program is led by Professor Robyn Eversole, Swinburne’s Centre for Social Impact (CSI) and the team comprises Seedlab Tasmania’s Dr Hazel MacTavish-West and Amanda Hinds, Deanna Hutchinson and Sheree Vertigan from Cradle Coast Authority and Ali Uren of Switch Tasmania; with Netty Schrammeyer as project manager. The program has been awarded a grant of $179,400 under the Tasmanian Government’s Supporting women to Succeed Grants Program 2021. The project will focus on nine council areas of West and North-West Tasmania.

Registrations of interest in participating will shortly open here.
