Faster financial rewards
A BOOST for that innovation you have worked on through the downturn.
Wednesday 29 March 2017
Accounting firm KPMG has been selected to facilitate a government-funded project to speed up the commercialisation of new products and innovations in mining.
The project comes through the Mining Equipment, Technology and Service Ignited (METS) initiative whose stated mission is to; “strengthen Australia’s position as a global hub for mining innovation”.
According to METS CEO Ric Gros, the accelerator program helps businesses of all sizes who are through the development phase and are working on commercialising their new product or innovation.
“It’s a late stage accelerator program, which means we are providing a pathway to help businesses speed up the commercial part of the project,” he said.
“What we are looking for are people with well-advanced ideas, who need help and guidance about how to get it into the market.
“What we will be providing is access to experts who have been there before, who understand best practice, value chains, and how to build awareness.
“While we are not providing specific customers or contracts, we are helping participants fast-track the innovation cycle, reduce the risk in investment, and improve collaboration between METS companies and the mining sector.”
So if you have been using the downturn to work on a great innovation for the resources sector the program could be for you.
The METS program runs for three months, and if you would like more information click here
