QLD Govt Launches Rise Programme

The Queensland government on Friday launched the Resources Innovators, Scale-ups and Entrepreneurs (RISE) accelerator programme, to provide mentoring to scale-ups offering proven solutions to priority challenges facing the mining and energy resources sectors.

“It’s about providing these scale-ups with a better understanding of customer needs and processes, so we can help them refine their value propositions and pitches to attract buyers and investors from around the world,” Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said.

“This builds on the success of the 2017 Igniting mining equipment, technology and services (METS) Accelerator, delivered in partnership with METS Ignited, the Australian government’s Industry Growth Centre for METS.
