THE Regional Online Heroes 2016 competition launched last month, seeking the next wave of regional businesses who are using digital tools to grow.

Being a Regional Online Hero could mean anything from using online marketing to attract interstate customers, expanding from a traditional bricks and mortar store to selling online, or managing a team across borders using shared documents on the cloud.

Google Australia and the Regional Australia Institute partnered up for the Regional Online Heroes competition to showcase and support regional businesses that are leading the way.

Ten finalists will be flown from their nearest regional airport to Sydney for a money-can't-buy master class at Google HQ.

The master class will include lessons in online marketing, tips on creating a great office culture, including to encourage innovation and ideas on how to amplify your messages in the media.

To enter or find out more about the competition or 2015 finalists, visit the website at regional australia.org.au/regional onlineheroes2016.

Entries for the 2016 competition close midnight on Friday, October 28.
