Results of SuccessMAP 2014-2016 program

*Our first SuccessMAP Acceleration program was a Victorian Government initiative for emerging businesses who required access to advice, mentoring, coaching, capital and specialist networks to achieve high growth aspirations.

A number of eligibility requirements were mandatory. Applications were received and detailed interviews with entrepreneurs held. A smaller number of the applicants were then offered a place in the program subject to signing their participation contract and paying their fee contribution.

The participation fee was $10,000 and successful applicant entrepreneurs received a $9,000 contribution from the government. Entrepreneurs were required to contribute $1,000.

Since January 2014, Bill Lang International has had 114 businesses complete the program.
