Start-ups and small businesses in North Lakes and Deception Bay can get up to $250,000 to advance their innovative products and services, said Chris Whiting MP.
The Advance Queensland Ignite Ideas fund has so far supported more than 200 Queensland businesses and more than 1000 new jobs through $26.5 million of Ignite Ideas funding.
“Local businesses in areas such as tourism, agriculture, advanced manufacturing, engineering, renewable energy, information technology, and construction can all get funding through Advance Queensland Ignite,” said Chris Whiting MP.
“Through this Advance Queensland program, the Queensland Government is providing innovative businesses with opportunities to take their ready-to-market idea to the next level”.
“I’m encouraging small businesses and innovators in North Lakes and Deception Bay to apply for Round 4 of this program,” said Chris Whiting MP.
Projects are assessed on their ability to commercialise innovative products and demonstrate job creation and a positive impact for our regional economy.
Innovation Minister Kate Jones said the Advance Queensland Ignite Ideas program targets businesses with fewer than 200 staff that have a suitable working prototype that is ready to be turned into commercial reality.
“Advance Queensland is the Palaszczuk Government’s $518 million initiative to diversify Queensland’s economy, create the jobs of the future and build Queensland’s reputation as a global innovation and investment destination,” she said.
