Nov 11, -0001

CORE Innovation Hub

The Pilbara Innovation Exchange aimed to boost sustainable growth for small businesses and startups in the Pilbara region through a half-day program in Perth, featuring a trade show, keynote presentations, and networking opportunities. The event also marked the launch of the Pilbara Innovation Journal, targeting 100-120 attendees and a readership of 10,000.


Catalyst Inspire funding facilitated Pilbara-based companies’ travel to Perth, making the event accessible for regional small business owners. The direct impact included 32 individuals from 18 companies attending, with a total of 100+ people participating, including speakers from industry, government, and the ecosystem. Indirectly, the companies expanded their reach through networking, with 3,300+ digital impressions on LinkedIn from attendees and their networks.
