Scholarships for The Icehouse’s 36th Owner Manager Programme
The Icehouse, a business growth hub, has selected five business owners from across the country to receive their Owner Manager Programme Scholarships for the 36th programme. These recipients will receive up to 25% of the cost of the programme.
Funded by Graham and Anne Catley founders of Stolthaven Australasia; Impact Capital Management; Bernie and Kaye Crosby from Prolife Foods; and The Icehouse, The Scholarship Programme is in its first year. It is designed to enable more owner-managers to attend The Icehouse Owner Manager Programme.
Recipients were selected from a multitude of industries including retail, business services, trade, agriculture, and education.
Criteria for the applications were $3m+ turnover with a significant opportunity and ambition for growth, and equity stake in and management control of the business. Special consideration was also given to under 35s, females, exporters and people from diverse groups.
Andy Hamilton, CEO of The Icehouse says he’s looking forward to seeing the impact the programme will have on the five worthy recipients.
“Having worked with over 650 business owners through the Owner Manager Programme, we know the impact this programme will have on these owners and their businesses” he says.
