Generator has been built to enable innovators in regional business communities to connect online and in-person. Together we can achieve the goal of generating more regional innovation from the ground up.

Generator was envisioned, validated and developed by Creative Corner Inc, the peak body for the creative industries in the South West. The project has regional consortium partners and state and federal government supporters.

With the support of the Generator Team and local Network Partners, new and existing businesses can access a comprehensive suite of website tools that can help make innovative ideas a reality. Think of the platform as your community's own 'Learn & Do' Management System. It is a centralised location for information, education, action and promotion of all things related to regional innovation development in your patch.

The cornerstone of the Generator Platform is the digital incubator program called Validator. It is an expert-guided business idea validation course designed for new or existing businesses. The program is the first stage in the innovation development funnel. It helps participants define an innovative idea into a business solution and then validate it with the assumed customers. The goal of the program is to enable innovators to determine, based on evidence, whether they should move forward, pivot or quit.

Being a Generator Network Partner puts your organisation at the forefront of local innovation development support. It is free of charge with potential fee for service opportunities. You are provided a user account with Editor access to your own areas in the platform. Your organisation would be the touchpoint for your business network and the conduit to all of the platform’s benefits. You will be providing your business network with a value-add service that has a low-risk commitment.

Your role as a Network Partner would be simple. Generator provides you with platform access with on-hand support and co-branded print and digital marketing materials. Marketing is managed and paid for by Generator so that you can engage your membership with the opportunity to join the online community and perhaps participate in the Validator Program.

With you, our long-term goal is to be the digital platform that supports the sustainable economic development of innovative domestic and export markets across Regional WA.
