Kickstart funding

Kickstart is an internal Curtin funding program that can provide up to $300,000 funding per project for proof of concept, prototyping, pilot scale trialling, business planning and other activities that can assist with the translation of research outcomes towards commercial success.

The funding is available for projects that have considerable commercial potential and have an identified pathway to market.

Obtain Kickstart funding

To obtain Kickstart funding, projects are presented to the Commercialisation Advisory Board (CAB), with the support of IP Commercialisation staff. The CAB then makes a recommendation on whether to approve the funding request. Meetings occur on a quarterly basis.
