The India Australia Rapid Innovation and Startup Expansion (RISE) Accelerator provides support to startups and small- to medium-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.

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 to discover how we will help you to accelerate your technology or solutions across Indian and Australian innovation ecosystems.
