An information session for the Stepping Up Advanced - Equity Capital Raising Program will be held on Wednesday 28th January at 5.30pm in Sydney.

The Stepping Up program is an initiative of the NSW Department of State and Regional Development and is being delivered in association with Alchemy Innovation Development.

Two Stepping Up programs are being offered – Metropolitan Sydney and Regional NSW.

The information session for the Regional NSW program will be delivered via webinar on Friday 30th at 4pm. A regional session will also be held in Tamworth on Monday 2nd February 2009 at 5:30pm.

“Companies can utilise DSRD support of up to $7,500 over 3 stages, toward the costs of an equity capital raising of up to $5,000,000, to expand their business. It’s a program that many businesses would benefit from given the challenges in acquiring credit for their businesses”, says Managing Director of Alchemy Innovation Development Mr. Dan Liszka.
