Setting up an online business in regional Australia

New digital technologies, are breaking down the traditional barriers that once kept people from remaining in, or moving to, small towns. It’s led to a new “e-change movement”, where people relocate from the city to regional and rural areas, using technology to work remotely or run businesses online.



Why the contribution is important

Digital technologies can offer greater mobility and flexibility for people starting and running a business outside of capital cities.

    Agreed that the NBN, once it is working properly and accessible to the majority in regional Australia, really will reduce the tyranny of distance many regional Australians have grown up with. There is absolutely no reason why people can't be starting great online businesses in regional and remote areas as long as they have access to fast and reliable internet as well as learning opportunities to develop their business skills.
