About this event
Most Innovations Fail because they lack access to capital!
Innovate Australia is bringing you a series of seminars covering all of the sources of funding that Innovators can access: from when they first start all the way up the journey into commercial success and beyond.
The event will give you a summary and introduction to all sources of funds and not just as a presentation but with one of WA’s most successful Innovations walking through its journey from Idea through to listing and beyond.
With the release on March 9th of the WA Government’s TWO grants, the Investment Attraction Fund, AND the Innovation Booster Grant we will have a detailed discussion on both of these.
Guest Charlie Gunningham, Director of Innovation at the WA Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science, and Innovation (JTSI) will talk to us about the Booster Grant.
Guest Mark Pivac, the Founder and CTO of FBR, Perth’s world-leading automated bricklaying robot company, is going to share their Innovation journey and what funds they have accessed along each step of that journey!
The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session and a general discussion moderated by Steve Carroll.
Steve Carroll, the CEO of Innovate Australia, to provide you with an introduction to all key funding sources, what they provide when to access them, how to access them, and who can help you with them.
Steve has over 20 years of hands-on experience working with 1,000s of Innovators helping them access a range of funding sources.
As well as his presentation, Steve will give you tools to take back to your Innovation so you can better prepare for your future funding options.
Tickets are $25 plus the Eventbrite fee.
