GAP Funding

What is it about?

A total fund of up to $250,000 will be awarded which must be used to develop the IP into a working prototype, for product development, and/or perform market studies. This is a competitive grant in which proposals are evaluated based on technical, commercial feasibility, and the capability of the team by a review panel. An option for equity will be implemented to the receiver of the award.



Selected start-ups will receive dedicated mentorships, co-working space, and a regular 1 on 1 meeting with the Centre Director as part of the mentoring to meet project milestones.
