Money Magnet Virtual Workshop – North Queensland
May 26 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am AEST
UPDATE: Due to the current health risks posed by COVID-19, the upcoming Innovate Queensland Townsville & Charters Towers Money Magnet Workshop, scheduled for 26th May 2020 will now be delivered virtually.
Does your business need a financial boost to remain thriving or to turn new ideas into new business streams?
Both the Queensland and federal governments are offering unprecedented funding, business support, tax incentives and other investment initiatives so that businesses can benefit from commercialising ideas and intellectual assets during COVID-19.
Ideas on their own don’t attract investment. You need to have a clear value proposition, sound business case, and a solid understanding of what public and private investors expect from your idea to progress it to product phase.
This free, practical workshop is for businesses wanting to find out what sources of funding are available and what appeals to different types of investors. SME owners and managers are especially welcome.
Designed and delivered by experts in attracting both government and private sector funding to further transformational ideas in business, the Money Magnet Workshop identifies critical value points and explains how to position pitches to boost an idea’s power to secure investment.
Specifically, you’ll learn:
• The common attributes that public and private investors look for in a new opportunity
• What you need to have in place before approaching potential backers
• How grants are commonly assessed
• Techniques to differentiate and articulate value
• Funding options and pathways
• What makes a pitch or proposal more likely to succeed
Innovate Queensland aims to help you:
✓ reduce commercialisation costs
✓ access commercialisation expertise
✓ reduce time lags from idea to income
✓ better target market needs and increase market uptake
✓ choose the right business models
✓ integrate innovation into your existing operations
The Innovate Queensland Program is delivered by Impact Innovation Group Pty Ltd under contract to the Queensland Government and supports the Government’s $755 million Advance Queensland initiative.
