Applications are now open for ON, Australia’s sci-tech accelerator Prime, designed to help researchers translate their big ideas into real-life impact.

ON Prime is a part-time pre-accelerator that brings together Australia’s brightest researchers—that’s where you come in—with leading entrepreneurs, business and commercialisation specialists and inspiring mentors. Together, you will test paths for your IP and/or technology through a process of customer discovery and market validation, and unlock your entrepreneurial nous required to take your work to the next level.

The best bit? There is no cost to you for participating and there’s no strings attached – you get to keep your IP.

Applications close 2 February 2018.

What is ON Prime?

ON Prime is a pre-accelerator, designed to help research teams take their ideas to the next level. Over 8 weeks (5 face-to-face sessions in total), participants will test paths for their IP, know-how or technology through a process of customer discovery and market validation, and build their entrepreneurial and business model capabilities to ensure they are working on the right problems, targeting the right markets and capitalising on the best opportunities.

ON Prime is open to researchers from all Australian publicly funded research agencies and universities, and their teams - and the good news is that it is free to participate and all IP and equity remains the property of the participating research team or sponsoring institute.

Several ON Prime experiences will be delivered simultaneously across Australia in early 2018, in locations all over the country.
