The India Australia Rapid Innovation and Startup Expansion (RISE) Accelerator provides support to startups and small-to-mid sized enterprises (SMEs) who are working on innovative technology and are considering overseas expansion between India and Australia.
The nine-month accelerator program enables Australian and Indian innovators and industry partners to tackle shared national and global challenges. The program focusses on environment and climate technologies.
Our first round will focus on startups and SMEs with an innovative business model, technology, and/or resource ingenuity that will support India’s and Australia’s transition to a circular economy.
We’ll help you navigate early steps in a new region, validate and adapt technology and research overseas, fast-track connections to the right partners, customers and talent, and build credibility to succeed in international markets. Explore the full program overview here.
The RISE Accelerator is delivered through a powerful partnership between:
- CSIRO – Australia’s national science agency
- Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), NITI Aayog – the Government of India’s flagship initiative to promote a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in the country.
