SPUR grant funding is available to progress your idea, product or service to market.
Grant funds are not intended to finance projects in full. Applications must include a budget detailing the requested grant funds and other funding sources.
Applicants should show a clear link between the proposed activities and intended outcomes. The proposal can be commercial, or community focussed.
Examples of what the grant funds can be used towards include (but aren’t limited to):
- product development (prototype development, product testing, engineering design work, website or app development)
- commercialisation services (business, financial, marketing or legal advice)
- intellectual property protection.
The grant will not fund activities retrospectively, or support business as usual costs (eg. established products and services or salaries).
The SPURonWA grant application process is a one-stage competitive process involving the submission of a written application and budget.
The evaluation of your application happens in two phases:
Phase 1: initial assessment to determine if the application is complete and the eligibility criteria has been met.
Phase 2: assessment of the project proposal against the following criteria:
- location information is an integral component of the product/ service
- the product/ service is innovative and new, has a unique value proposition with a market need
- the identified outcomes are achievable and the product/ service adds value to the WA economy
- the product/ service is considered sustainable with a sound project plan. The project team is invested and have the experience and skills to make the project successful
- the intellectual property position is secure and there is no potential issues.
The selection panel may also seek further clarification from applicants on aspects of their submission if required. This is to ensure that any confusion can be resolved quickly.
Successful applicants (recipients) will be required to enter into a grant funding agreement (Word 0.5MB) with SPUR.
Please note that SPUR reserves the right not to allocate the full $100,000.
