Buy From the Bush looks to give rural businesses their ‘Big Break’

Calling all bush businesses (or those with a big idea begging to become a reality)!

The Buy From the Bush crew is giving hardworking rural businesses, owners, entrepreneurs – or even those with a great idea looking to take the next step – a chance to make their dreams a reality.

The Buy From the Bush Big Break Competition has now opened to anyone in the bush with an idea for a new business plan or to grow an existing one. All entrants have to do is pitch their plans in a video to go in the running to win a number of prizes to help kick-start what could be the next big bush business. That could be a new product, a service, a growth plan, a key-hire or something else. 

Here’s what BFTB are looking for:

  • An engaging, informative pitch that tells the story of you/your idea/your potential
  • A business idea that will deliver a positive impact to your local community
  • A great idea with commercial appeal
