The Economic and Business Growth Fund was originally established as part of the 2018-19 Budget in order to promote economic growth in South Australia by encouraging growth of existing industries, developing new industries, building international connections, and attracting foreign and national direct investment.

In addition to this $100 million initial investment in our state's economy, the government has provided $220 million as part of the 2020-21 Budget to expand the Economic and Business Growth Fund to a total investment of $320 million.
