Innovation Connect

The Innovation Connect Grant Round is now open.

The 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.

Innovation Connect is a matched-funding competitive grant program that provides support for smaller, technology focused start-ups and entrepreneurs to accelerate viable, innovative ideas along the commercialisation pathway.

Innovation Connect provides competitive grants of between $10,000 to $30,000 for proving your concept (e.g. developing a prototype or market testing your solution).

From 30 October 2018 Innovation Connect will be delivered in a partnership between the ACT Government and Canberra Innovation Network.

The following is a list of recipients of Innovation Connect funding support since the program commenced in the 2008–09 financial year.
