RISE Scale-Up Accelerator Program

RISE is specifically designed for scale-up businesses with proven solutions to priority challenges facing the mining and energy resources sectors, who are seeking to commercialise their products and services in the domestic and international markets.

The RISE Accelerator, powered by KPMG Enterprise, is a 12 week program (running in Perth and Brisbane from March to May 2019) that will challenge all aspects of your value proposition , business model and strategy, and equip you with the skills and capabilities to develop your innovation, win more work, and grow your business.

As a precursor to the RISE Accelerator program, KPMG will be delivering information sessions and training workshops, as well as a bootcamp style pitching and judging event in Karratha.

The purpose of the Karratha roadshow is to raise awareness, interest and involvement in RISE, and to identify potential startup teams and existing SME businesses to help them prepare applications to the accelerator program. In addition, winners of the pitching event will shortcut the application process by being shortlisted into the pool of applicants for final selection into the accelerator cohort.

"KPMG partners and specialists from across our management consulting, deal advisory, R&D tax and private enterprise practices will be joined by leading industry mentors and experts, each dedicating their time and expertise to assist our selected scale-ups and SMEs in taking their businesses to the next stage of growth."

Who should attend?

  • Late-stage startups and SMEs with technology and solutions for the METS & Mining sector

  • Mining sector related industry groups and their members

  • Local innovation/startup ecosystem representatives

WHEN: 24th January 2019
