Hi team,

Emerging engineering Sci Tech Startup & SME opportunity.

Some of you may already be aware of this roadshow coming to Toowoomba via
Canvas Coworking Space and Startup Toowoomba.

I would like to introduce you all to Lisa Jenkinson, Head of Innovation &
Entrepreneurship for the KPMG Queensland practice.  KPMG has been appointed
by METS Ignited to operate the Igniting METS Accelerator – Australia’s
leading Mining Equipment & Technology Services (METS) sector startup
accelerator program, helping startups and SMEs to commercialise their
innovative products and services with enterprise customers and expand into
global markets.

The Igniting METS Accelerator program is searching for the best and
brightest METS and Mining startups and SMEs around Queensland, who are
tackling some of the sector's most critical challenges. The successful
applicants will be fast-tracked through an intensive 12-week program of
deep dive workshops, mentoring and support from industry leaders,
entrepreneurs and subject matter experts from Queensland, around Australia,
and beyond – all designed to ignite a new wave of innovation within the
sector.

As a precursor to the accelerator program, we’ll be delivering information
sessions and training workings, as well as a bootcamp style pitching and
judging event in Toowoomba to raise awareness, interest and involvement in
METS & Mining innovation and commercialisation, and to identify potential
startup teams and existing SME businesses to help them prepare applications
to the 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 which will be held in Brisbane
between July – October


I will leave with you to connect with Lisa about the Accelerator and seek
some further information about the opportunities for your organisations to
participate and support this exciting initiative for the Toowoomba region.
