As well as developing local and statewide expertise, many very useful resources (financial models, templates, procedures) have been developed that are licensed for re-used in other regions.
Current projects include:
Practitioner Network - Statewide
Meshpoints has been growing a statewide practitioner network supported through volunteers and a percentage of earnings. This is at the core of our purpose and grows the number and quality of facilitators growing innovation in our regions. Details of activities are on the blog and details of qualifications and learning program on the Resources' page
Ecosystem Mapping and Report - South West
Meshpoints have been engaged by Business South West to do an initial mapping of the South West innovation ecosystem, and participatory assessment of its maturity. This will grow stakeholder relationships, make support for local innovations more visible, and enable strategic investment in the region's capacity.
The Web - Port Hedland
Meshpoints assisted local lead partners to attract funding for an incubator and programs Port Hedland. Since early 2017 we have been providing:
- specialist advice on: building design, business model development, community engagement and digital platforms for operations,
- mentoring, recruitment and training for key staff to be involved in delivery,
- planning and facilitation of and introductory public workshops.
The Edge - Newman
Meshpoints assisted with business model development, fit-out, pilot learning programs, digital engagement. We are mentoring local staff to lead development of the space and programs to deliver activation, social and economic outcomes.
Past projects include:
Growing Innovation - Albany and Great Southern
Meshpoints were engaged to deliver presentations, workshops, training and recommendations to an alliance of organisations in the Great Southern. We efficiently delivered both site-specific advice, training in facilitation and startup methodologies, and an initial roadmap for innovation across the region.
Regional Addendum to the State Innovation Strategy - Statewide
Meshpoints worked with practitioners from every region to draft a prioritised strategy for growing innovation in the regions. The draft strategy framework enables easy assessment of the relative the maturity of 'ecosystem' in each region. The final draft document was accepted by the state agency, with contents informing the development of the approach taken by the new State government. As part of the process we reviewed all the relevant precedent strategies from around Australia and developed recommendations relevant to every region.
