Queensland has more than 200 startups, which employ in excess of 1,900 people. The Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland program will help us solve global challenges, seize opportunities in growing markets, compete for investment dollars, and create the jobs of the future.
The Startup Queensland fund is designed to support Queensland’s entrepreneurial/startup ecosystem by assisting young entrepreneurial firms to commercialise innovative ideas.

Funding is available for up to 50% of your total eligible activity costs, up to a maximum of $25,000 (excluding GST) per activity. Total activity costs may include in-kind contributions.
