Four Territory entrepreneurs and small businesses have received support under the Business Innovation Support Initiatives (BISI) program to take their innovative ideas to the next stage.
Entrepreneur, Amy Page received a BISI grant for her product Belly Bunker, an inflatable bed allowing pregnant woman to lay on their tummy to experience many health and leisure benefits for mother and baby.
The BISI grant will now help Amy refine the design, add new features and reach new markets for her product.
“Even though you have brought a great idea to life, nobody is going to know about it unless you get it marketed which can cost a bucket load… and for most of us there’s only so much family funds you can spare.”
“BISI has made this possible at rate I could only dream of, I’ll be able to travel nationally to speak to leading health professionals and put this product front and center at all major expos,” she said.
Other supported BISI projects include; a small device that ventilates work clothing for workers in hot, humid and confined areas, a mobile laser mapping system using low cost light detection and ranging sensors and an interactive portal on digital devices to learn, create and share multimedia education content.
The Business Innovation Support Initiatives program is open all year round, and provides up to 60% support for eligible projects. Each voucher is up to $25,000.
