Rechelle and Annie feel part of our team, they’re always approachable and very down to earth. Their knowledge of what grants are available is then accurately interpreted and constructed in the required language to lodge an application – a crucial task they have partnered with Fleece to Fashion over the past year.
In 2019 they offered to help us secure more sponsorship and look to further grants for 2020. They noted we had 10 days to lodge an application for a NSW Government grant, they made the deadline easily.
The Fleece to Fashion 2020 event had to be cancelled because of COVID19 restrictions, along with sponsorship and grants. Annie and Rechelle have picked up the promised sponsorships and are now looking to 2021.
I have no doubt 2021 will be bigger and better with RegionalCollab there to help us secure funds. This event is a huge passion of a great number of people in the region, and without that all-important funding we simply wouldn’t have been able to keep going. We are so grateful to RegionalCollab for their expertise, support and friendship.

I’ve been working with Pointer Remote for three years now – it’s a great role but, as the name suggests, I do work remotely. So literally the only company I have during the day is the dog.
That all changed when I met up with Annie and Rechelle from RegionalCollab.
We were working together on some grant applications and I immediately felt welcomed and just knew they were my kind of people. They are so generous with their time, knowledge and resources and we’ve now established such a great working relationship – one we enjoy both remotely, and in person when possible.
We also often share contacts and really support and fuel each other’s businesses in that way. So while we’ll continue to work with them whenever funding and grants are needed, I’m also excited to collaborate with them as they work to support other regional businesses and start-ups.
Most importantly, I trust them entirely. They’re so well connected and really know their stuff, so whenever we do have a job for them I absolutely know it will be done to the highest of standards. I have full faith that they have the skills and experience to do anything I throw at them and they’ll do it in their own down-to-earth, relatable way. And that’s not something to be underestimated, their innate ability to connect with others, that’s something to celebrated.
