What do you get?

Matched funding of up to $25,000.

Who is this for?

NSW technology start-ups.


Funding is available to support promising pre-revenue startups to progress from proof of concept to a minimum viable product (MVP) stage.

  • to a stage where feedback indicates the MVP is inadequate for the planned business model.

Grants of up to $25,000 are available to cover up to 50% of approved project costs.

Regional recipients of the MVP grant may also be able to claim a travel stipend to help them travel for an innovation-related purpose.

  • be at pre-revenue stage

  • have a potential business customer or business channel to market to
  • have a scalable solution that can be deployed to multiple customers
