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

The grant can be used to develop an MVP to either:

  • 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.
