Event description

Description

The RISE Scale-up Accelerator for the Mining and Energy Resources sectors is a collaboration between METS Ignited, NERA, the Queensland Government, the Western Australian Government and KPMG. The RISE website is here: http://riseaccelerator.org

RISE is specifically designed for scale-up businesses with proven solutions to priority challenges facing the mining and energy resources sectors, who are seeking to commercialise their products and services in the domestic and international markets. The RISE Accelerator, powered by KPMG Energise, is a 12-week program (running in Perth and Brisbane from March to May 2019) that will challenge all aspects of your value proposition, business model and strategy, and equip you with the skills and capabilities to develop your innovation, win more work, and grow your business.

As a precursor to the RISE Accelerator program, KPMG will be delivering information sessions and training workshops, as well as a bootcamp style pitching and judging event in Kalgoorlie.

The purpose of the Kalgoorlie roadshow is to raise awareness, interest and involvement in RISE, and to identify potential startup teams and existing SME businesses to help them prepare applications to the accelerator 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 cohort.
