Our program

The Bega Valley Innovation Hub isn’t your average accelerator. We do more than simply getting you off the ground – we set you up with the skills and know-how to build and grow your business exponentially into the future.

The BVIH 2.0 Program beginning in early 2022 is delivered virtually as an interactive online course, through a blend of facilitator led workshops, self-paced online learning, individual mentoring and peer support from fellow participating businesses.

Participants should expect to attend live online workshops, plus 2-3 hours of self-paced online learning each week.

We are open to anyone with a brilliant idea

Our programs are open to anyone with a brilliant idea they’re keen to pursue.

Our Founders are startups, small to medium enterprises and large organisations looking to innovate. We’re also home to government bodies ready to do things differently and social enterprises with a higher purpose for humanity.

We offer

  • Structured programming
  • Online access to training, mentoring and co-working.

What we look for

When we’re assessing your application, we’re looking for:

  • A scalable business
  • High-performance teams
  • Commitment to growing the Bega Valley ecosystem, and/or
  • Openness to feedback.

And from there, anything can happen.



The Activate Program is a principled approach to new product development, customer delivery and continuous improvement to ensure a solid foundation to launch a sustainable business.

Join BVIH in 2022, with our first cohort commencing Friday 1 April 2022 and running through to June, with 8 workshops plus Orientation and Pitch Final.

“It was the whole package of how to approach the task of being an effective entrepreneurial enterprise. There was excellent variety and the online materials were easy to navigate. The support provided was excellent and being part of a great cohort is of real benefit.”
– Doug Reckord, Bega Tathra Safe Ride, 2021 BVIH Cohort People’s Choice Winner
