The Accelerating Commercialisation programme connects successful applicants with professional, independent and experienced Commercialisation Advisers who are able to provide guidance on managing participants’ intellectual property portfolios.

Grants of up to $1 million are also available under the programme and can be used for up to 50% of eligible expenditure, including the cost of obtaining intellectual property protection.

Additional services available through the programme include:

  • An invitation to join the Portfolio of Australian businesses that are undertaking early stage commercialisation activities
  • An opportunity to access the Expert Network (via Advisers) to help make important business connections, create opportunities to raise capital, and/or enter new markets, and
  • Potential exposure to investors and multi-national corporations through domestic and international roadshows.
