ON Prime Program

For big ideas ready to break outConnect

ON is Australia’s sci-tech innovation accelerator dedicated to unearthing amazing research and steering it towards high potential innovative ventures. Established by CSIRO in 2015, ON specialises in assisting researchers from the fields of science and technology working on projects that have the potential to shape Australia’s future.

ON Prime is an entry level, part-time pre-accelerator that helps research teams validate their research and discover a real-world application for it.

All teams who participate in ON Prime will have access to our experienced Facilitators and 80+ strong network of business leaders, entrepreneurs who’ve been there and done it before.

The commitment to this program is approximately five face-to-face sessions (six days in total) and ten hours’ commitment per team member across eight weeks. In addition to this, each program culminates in a final ‘Showcase’ event that profiles teams and includes an assessment of the team’s Investment Readiness Level.

Teams selected into ON Prime can earn up to $5,000 as performance bonus throughout the program. And the good news is, all IP and equity remains the property of the team or their sponsoring institute.
