Page last updated: Thursday, 13 August 2020 - 1:07pm

The Investor Readiness Program is a Western Australian (WA) State Government initiative managed by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD). It aims to support WA agriculture and food businesses to become investor ready in order to attract capital, which will in turn, support economic growth and regional job creation.

The Investor Readiness Program is targeted at WA small to medium enterprises (SME’s) that are seeking to grow, expand and diversify and provides comprehensive support by delivering three different components between November 2019 and November 2020:


A series of printed and online resources, including a guide to investor readiness, templates and case studies, will be developed to enable WA agriculture and food businesses to improve their skills and confidence in undertaking capital raising.




A range of masterclasses and webinars will be delivered to enable Western Australian businesses to increase their capacity in becoming investor ready and raising capital.
