Are you a rural innovator
who wants the opportunity
of a lifetime?


Our Mission

We’re on a mission to rejuvenate rural Australia by unearthing, connecting and supporting rural innovators who want to grow a business.

The Australian Centre for Rural Entrepreneurship (ACRE) and SecondMuse, a global innovation agency, developed the Breakout Accelerator as a dedicated program for rural innovators.

It’s a new way of connecting rural creativity and drive with the power and reach of international networks, experience and expertise.

Through the Breakout Accelerator, a new generation of rural businesses will be coached, mentored and connected to national and global networks to drive their ideas forward whilst staying in the communities they love.


Interested in applying?

The 2019/2020 Breakout Accelerator invites applications from people living in rural Victoria and southern NSW who are starting up, growing or diversifying a business.

Online applications are open from 16 August – 27 September 2019
