Accelerating Commercialisation provides expert guidance and support to help you commercialise novel products, processes and services and find a commercialisation solution that is right for you.

Accelerating Commercialisation includes:

  • Commercialisation Guidance – guidance and assistance to develop the commercialisation potential of your novel product, process or service
  • Accelerating Commercialisation Grants – financial assistance to help commercialise your novel product, process and service.

Commercialisation Guidance

When you apply for Commercialisation Guidance, we connect you to an AusIndustry Customer Service Manager or an Accelerating Commercialisation Facilitator. Advice and support provided is tailored to your business situation and the commercialisation potential of your novel product, process or service, and may include:

  • initial guidance on commercialisation
  • referral to other government assistance to support your business needs
  • feedback if you want to apply for an Accelerating Commercialisation Grant
  • more intensive support and guidance to develop your commercialisation strategy

Accelerating Commercialisation Grant

Accelerating Commercialisation Grants provide up to 50% of eligible expenditure to support your commercialisation project. If successful you will receive on-going support from your Facilitator throughout the life of your commercialisation project.

You must receive Commercialisation Guidance before you apply for an Accelerating Commercialisation Grant.


Commercialisation Guidance

To be suitable to receive Commercialisation Guidance you must have a novel product, process or service that you wish to commercialise for trade in Australian and/or overseas markets.

You must also meet the turnover test, which helps us target our advice and support to the businesses that need it most.
