The 7th round of the Advance Queensland Ignite Ideas Fund is now open.

This fund helps Queensland based start-ups and small to medium Queensland businesses to commercialise innovative products, processes and services to enable them to grow and compete in a global market and create new jobs.

The start-ups/businesses must show viability and scalability beyond completion of the project as a key long term outcome.

Applications close 10 am Thursday 16 July 2020.

This deadline is extremely tight for the work required to complete an application, so we encourage you to start work on this early.

Two tiers of funding is available:

  • Tier 1 – Up to $100,000 for projects of up to 12 months duration. Matched funding of 20% is needed for 100,000 grants.
  • Tier 2 – Greater than $100,000 and up to $200,000 for projects of up to 24 months duration. Equal funding is needed for $100,000-$200,000 grants.


The Expression of interest stage is open to all eligible registered Queensland businesses.

There is a two-stage application process. Applicants will be notified of the Expression of Interest outcome within approximately 8 weeks of the closing date.
