Kickstart is an internal Curtin funding program that can assist with the costs of proof of concept, prototyping, pilot scale trialling, business planning and other activities that will accelerate 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 Commercialisation staff. The CAB then makes a recommendation on whether to approve the funding request. Meetings occur on a quarterly basis.
