Castlemaine Digital Innovation Festival

  • Cohoots Coworking 40 Forest Street Castlemaine, VIC, 3450 Australia (map)

To celebrate the start of the Digital Innovation Festival, Cohoots is hosting a lunch for all local entrepreneurs and businesses. The digital world provides us with the easiest, most effective and most widespread ways to connect, to source supplies, to reach customers, to know what other businesses are around locally, and to find new staff. 

Over lunch you can participate in a Q&A with two businesses who provide digital platforms that support local businesses and their communities. All businesses will find this event useful whether you are big, small, established or new, sole trader at home or a mobile business. One of these two platforms will have you covered.

Stay connected in our rapidly changing digital world. These platforms offer you ways to be at the forefront of your networking, supply chains and business development initiatives.

Us locals are the ones who need to maintain our local vitality. This can be part of that future. Come along and find out what they do, how they do it, how your business can leverage their technologies, and what's involve in using them.

Being a Cohoots event, there will be no hard sell, just information sharing and connecting. Come along and be part of the future.

Presentations on the day include:

Localised operates across regional Victoria including Mount Alexander, Greater Bendigo, Central Goldfields, Greater Geelong & Colac areas.

Every year billions of dollars in procurement spending is leaving regional economies and being spent with capital city suppliers.

With small business making up as much of 90% of local economies, creating visibility of local supplier capability is critical to supporting local economic growth.

Localised makes it easy for local business to be discovered and to be connected to local procurement opportunity.

Since launching in January 2017, more than $60 million in procurement opportunities have been posted through Localised.

Localised is used by Local Councils, State Government, utilities, health and education sector organisations as well as the private sector to find and buy from local businesses.

Putting people at the heart of local communities, ProLocal provides a platform for individual business owners and micro-businesses to share their unique products and service offerings. Our mission is to strengthen the relationships of small businesses with their local communities and tourists. 

ProLocal community engagement platform allows individuals, home businesses and local businesses to list their products and services for locals to easily find them, and also allows them to post jobs, creating economic prosperity for the local community.

Prolocal is about to launch across the Mount Alexander, Macedon Ranges and Hepburn shires.
