Wilderness Collective supports and facilitates new businesses and opportunities within the district. We assist through business mentoring, skills development, as well as offering networks and support.

Business Mentoring and Development

Living in a remote community, businesses often need to think creatively.

The Wilderness Collective offers support packages for remote and rural businesses and community groups that need someone who understands the dynamics and nuances of living in small towns – but ultimately engaging with the world.

Community Rejuvenation

Our Community Rejuvenation and Capacity Building program runs the ‘Think, Start, Grow’ program (delivered by ACRE) for prospective businesses in town. We have also held community information events around social enterprises and looking into new opportunities for our region.

Our aim is to continue to build the capacity and capability of our town to foster an enterprise culture that will enable a year-round sustainable economy and employment opportunities for our locals.

Social Enterprise Schools

Wilderness Collective is supporting the Social Enterprise Schools program at Mallacoota P-12 College (delivered by the Australian Centre for Rural Entrepreneurship.)

It’s a collaborative, hands-on program that empowers young people to make a difference to causes they care about through running a social enterprise.
