About

The Global Acceleration Program (GAP) is designed to assist companies seeking to enter export markets in China, to develop sustainable and practical market entry strategies, develop alliances, establish linkages in the target markets and benefit from tailored one-on-one mentoring over a five month period.

The GAP is delivered by Pyksis in partnership with ANZATech.

The GAP consists of:

  • one month Victorian-based commercialisation mentoring and market entry strategy development
  • two weeks in China with targeted in-market mentoring and meetings with potential supply chain partners and customers
  • five months of ongoing mentoring in Australia to assist in the further implementation of developed commercialisation and market entry strategies
  • provides practical skills to engage the Chinese in business

Co-contribution

The GAP Program is valued at over $35,000 per company and provides selected companies with a unique opportunity to enter the China market in a sustainable manner.

The GAP overseas component caters for one person per company and successful candidates will be required to contribute $5,000 (ex GST) to take part in GAP.

All other program related costs including international airfares, local in-country travel and accommodation are covered by GAP.

Applications

Applications are now being called for this program, which is scheduled to begin in August 2011 with the first delegation to visit China in October 2011. As the number of places available is limited, selection for participation will be on a competitive basis. Companies will be evaluated on strength of their value proposition, market readiness, demonstrated exclusive rights to their intellectual property, market knowledge and competitiveness/opportunity size.

Companies including start-ups through to established businesses, across all industry sectors (e.g. advanced manufacturing, agribusiness, sustainability, aquaculture, IT and transportation) seeking to develop new export markets, are eligible to apply.
