Are you developing an innovative product, process or service and could use matched funding of up to $1 million, as well as access to expert advice and connections? Are you marketing your company overseas and would like to recoup some costs? Or maybe you're freaking out over the recent changes to the R&D tax incentive program?
Sheryl Frame is the Commercialisation Adviser for the Department of Industry, Innovation & Science, and she's here to tell you what's what!
Sheryl will be taking us through the wide array of support available through the Australia Government Entrepreneurs' Program
(https://www.business.gov.au/assistance/entrepreneurs-programme) including Accelerating Commercialisation and Innovation Connections.
She will also talk about the Springboard Enterprises Australia (https://sbeaustralia.org/) that provides female founders the support, tools, expert knowledge and confidence to elevate ambitions and accelerate growth. SBE Australia has helped 56 companies raise $207 million, leading to 2 IPO and 6 exits!
Sheryl will also recap on other funding opportunities such as the EDMG grant, and address the recent crackdown on the R&D Tax incentive rules which forced some startups to pay back their previous benefit!(https://www.smartcompany.com.au/startupsmart/advice/rd-tax-incentive/)
So if you're building a company in WA, come along to Morning Startup and learn how to raise money, learn skills, gain connections, and recoup costs with the support offered by the Australian Government.
