Support for businesses in QLD
How do you know if there’s something for you? Read on to learn more about some of the grants available in QLD.
QLD GRANTS FOR INNOVATION
While business grants for innovation open, close and change over time, the Queensland Government’s ‘Advance Queensland’ programme is generally a good place to start. Here, the state government updates and lists grants for everything from small businesses to female founders and much more.
For example, there’s the Advance Queensland Industry Attraction Fund (AQIAF), an Indigenous Native Food Program and even the Business Development Fund QLD.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R&D) GRANTS AND TAX INCENTIVES
In the life sciences sector, the Life Sciences Catalyst provides access to capital and knowledge as well as training and resources to help businesses scale up or diversify into new markets. The R&D Tax Incentive Program helps offset money spent on R&D which benefits the wider Australian economy.
QLD GRANTS FOR STARTUPS
Startups should look at the Startup Onramp Regional Queensland Program which provides training and an accelerator program for high-growth startups. The Business Growth Fund Program also provides targeted assistance for small and medium businesses that demonstrate high-growth and employment aspirations.
SMALL BUSINESS GRANTS IN QLD
The Small Business Artisan Producer Grants Program is designed to help artisan producers of gourmet food grow their business. There’s also the Small Business Digital Grants Program to improve access to digital technologies and services and the Small Business Entrepreneur Grants Program which matches funding to help newly established businesses access professional advice and support in the early stages.
