Participate in the Business Mentoring for Innovation Program


The Business Mentoring for Innovation Program is a key ECRi Hub initiative that supports companies with new product ideas through a two-stage process to commercialisation.

The first stage of the program includes:

  • business analysis and fact-finding workshops
  • research and market analysis strategies
  • identifying anticipated outcomes and opportunities across industries, geography, markets and clients
  • documenting the next steps to commercialising the innovations.


The second stage of the program is tailored to the requirements of each participant and includes:

  • further technical review and assessment of the innovation
  • assistance with development of an approach to fostering further innovation
  • detailed exploration of commercialisation opportunities through networks and partnerships.


You must meet the following criteria to apply:

  • your product/service is innovative or new to the engineering, construction and resources sectors
  • you own, or are legally entitled to use, the intellectual property rights for the innovation
  • prototyping and testing has been successfully completed in a representative environment or proof-of-concept
  • you can co-contribute towards the cost of the mentoring services
