What is the Ignite Ideas Fund?

The Ignite Ideas Fund is an initiative to support Queensland based start-ups and small to medium Queensland businesses to commercialise innovative products, processes and services to enable them to grow and compete in a global market and create new jobs.

 

Background

The Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland initiative focuses on economic recovery, growing the economy and creating jobs. This includes supporting the growth of Queensland businesses to deliver new products and services into domestic and global markets, and establish new industries that will provide the jobs of the future.

The Ignite Ideas Fund supports Queensland based small to medium businesses that have high-growth potential to undertake commercialisation projects that will:

  • strengthen key industries in Queensland
  • diversify the Queensland economy
  • compete in domestic and global markets
  • engage and/or benefit regional Queensland
  • create new jobs, now and in to the future.

The impact of COVID-19 on the Queensland economy has been significant so the government is focusing on supporting those businesses that can assist in Queensland’s economic recovery now and in to the future.  Market viability, job creation and scalability beyond completion of the project will be key considerations this funding round of the Ignite Ideas Fund.

 

Funding

Ignite Ideas Funding is available under two Tiers:

  • Tier 1 – Up to $100,000 (excluding GST) for projects of up to 12 months duration.
  • Tier 2 – Greater than $100,000 and up to $200,000 (excluding GST) for projects of up to 24 months duration.

    salary-related on-costs)
  • services provided by (unrelated) external parties
  • consumables and equipment
  • travel, accommodation and subsistence costs.

It is expected that all Ignite Ideas funding will be expended in Queensland, unless it can be demonstrated that expenditure outside Queensland is essential to ensure successful delivery of the project. Project costs must be deemed appropriate for the project and reasonable in nature by the Department.
