Companies in the Defence and Space Landing Pad have the opportunity to tap into a range of government support programs and a network of industry consultants.
The South Australian Space Industry Centre team can assist companies to establish offices, research and manufacturing facilities in South Australia’s key defence and innovation precincts. These include Osborne Naval Shipyard, Mawson Lakes’ Technology Park, Tonsley Innovation Precinct, Edinburgh Defence Precinct, as well as Lot Fourteen.
Pre-funded packages of up to $40,000 to access professional support and advice are available to eligible companies establishing in a new market or region through the South Australian Landing Pad program. Supported by the Department for Trade and Investment, the program supports companies looking to make their first investment in the Asia Pacific Region, Australia and South Australia.
Companies also have access to South Australia’s peak business advocacy body, Business SA. Offering a range of services, advice and training, Business SA works to ensure the broader economic environment is conducive to successful business, and helps businesses reach their full potential, including in export markets.
Easy Skill provides training, recruitment and technical assistance to companies in a broad range of industries, including the defence sector. The company has successfully expanded into South Australia and aims to foster links between Australia and France.
