Preparatory workshops are structured to cover:

• Crafting unique & commercially relevant value propositions
• Accessing ecosystem support, including grants

”We work with Australian entrepreneurs, businesses and industry networks as you identify, visit and engage with new supply chains and global market opportunities. Going it alone is no longer the smart option. Harness the power of the collective to take your business to new heights with the Global Pathways Program.”
