The Entrepreneurs’ Programme has recently offered $11.2 million in commercialisation grants to 24 businesses across Australia. The grants will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the businesses. So far 234 businesses have benefited from the commercialisation funding provided through the Entrepreneurs’ Programme.

The projects supported by the grants address problems and needs in key industries, including food and agribusiness; oil, gas and energy resources; advanced manufacturing and medical technologies and pharmaceuticals.
