ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Igniting METS is an Australian-first joint initiative between METS Ignited and the Queensland Government to assist Mining, Equipment, Technology and Services companies. METS Ignited is an industry-led organisation funded by the Australian Government as part of its Growth Centre Initiative. The Igniting METS accelerator program seeks to bring late-stage scale-ups and SMEs together with leading resources sector corporates focused on innovative solutions, to drive greater industry collaboration and commercialisation outcomes across exploration, planning, production, environmental and social innovations.

 

The first intake of the Igniting METS accelerator will be held in Brisbane. The successful scale-up/SME applicants will be fast-tracked through an intensive 12-week program (commencing in late August) of deep dive workshops, mentoring and engagement with industry leaders, entrepreneurs and subject matter experts from Queensland, around Australia and beyond

REGIONAL ROADSHOWS

Roadshows in Toowoomba and Mackay in June will include an overview of our unique accelerator program for METS companies, workshops on defining your value proposition, and a pitching and judging event, all designed to help SME teams prepare their accelerator applications and develop valuable skills for leading your companies to new stages of growth. Winners of the pitching event at each roadshow will be shortlisted for final selection into the accelerator program from July - October.

Please note: Applicants do not need to attend either roadshow to register an application for the 12-week accelerator program.  Whilst the roadshows are being held in regional Queensland, we encourage wider-ranging applicants who are prepared to participate in the accelerator in Brisbane.

ADVISORS & MENTORS

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 in taking their businesses to the next stage of their growth journey.

Ryan, Vayeron

Ultimately, this kind of opportunity - to be mentored for a day on the nuances of customer focused pitching by an organisation of KPMG’s esteem - is something which should be capitalised on by any scale-up company that gets the opportunity! And this is all before the accelerator program even begins!

Roadshow Testimonials:

Active Adrenalin Team

We were challenged by the content & encouraged by the presenters. This allowed us to uncover valuable information about why we are in business and what our value proposition is. The content, although fast paced was relevant and delivered seamlessly.

Murray, Mackay Pulley Laggers

I found the Igniting METS team very professional. They took the time to understand each business on its own merits and were able to communicate the key concepts in a clear and concise way. I would attend future Igniting METS sessions.
