Project Spotlight: Wodonga Innovation Project City of Wodonga
Delos Delta is working with Canberra Innovation Network (CBRIN) and Wodonga Council to implement an Innovation Network/Hub in Wodonga, Victoria.
Working closely with the Wodonga community, the aim of the project is to set up an innovation network/hub that fosters entrepreneurship, supports innovation, and allows business ideas to grow and develop.
An online stakeholder survey was recently released that aimed at identifying key issues and opportunities for the project. Encouragingly, the survey has received over 100 responses!
Ongoing engagement with the community is imperative to the project, as local ideas and views are key to tailoring the network/hub to the unique needs of Wodonga.
