Why you should apply

As we are at the forefront of modern manufacturing, we specialise in identifying the kind of technology needed to optimise your business or product.

Our experts work with companies like yours every day.

We have an in-house team of technical staff who work solely with companies looking to improve their products or solve a problem.

These staff are supported by researchers, many of whom are world-leaders in robotics, artificial intelligence, automation, and design.

Together, they offer you the opportunity to get the best advice on what you need for your business.


When you finish, you’ll have a fit-for-purpose roadmap for achieving any technology or manufacturing aims you have for your business.

Below are examples of how you could benefit from the accelerator.

Return on investment

The accelerator is funded by Advance Queensland Accelerating Female Founders Program. As such, the cost to participate is significantly reduced.

Participants will receive $25,000 worth of content and knowledge for $3000 (plus GST).

What’s involved

The accelerator will run for four months, finishing in November 2023.

It will be a hybrid delivery, with content delivered both online and in-person.

There are three phases:

  • exploring your business technology capabilities and identifying any barriers you’ve experienced
  • working out how ready you are to introduce or integrate new technology into your business
  • developing your personalised roadmap.
