Innovation Connect

The ACT Government’s Innovation Connect grant program is designed to help Canberra-based businesses develop innovative products and services. If your business is in the early stages of preparing an innovative product or service for investment or commercialisation, then Innovation Connect may be able to help you get to the next step.

The program has two categories:

  • Proof of Technology
    $5,000 to $30,000 of matching funding for proving your concept (eg developing a prototype). Funding rounds are held around two or three times a year.
  • Accelerating Innovation
    $5,000 to $10,000 of matching funding to further accelerate the commercialisation of your innovation. Applications can be assessed at any time.
