Scale-up accelerator announcement


METS Ignited and collaborative partners are pleased to announce the RISE accelerator program for scale-ups with innovative solutions for the mining and energy resources sectors.

RISE is specifically designed for SMEs with proven solutions to priority challenges in these sectors, looking to build their skills and capabilities to develop their innovation, win more work, and grow their business into domestic and international markets.

Announced at IMARC, the RISE accelerator builds on the winning formula of the 2017 Igniting METS accelerator pilot, an initiative of METS Ignited and the Queensland Government, with an expanded sector focus and national footprint through collaboration with NERA Industry Growth Centre and the Western Australian Government.

In 2017, KPMG was chosen as the Accelerator Operator, and again we have enlisted their support to facilitate the RISE program which will kick off in March 2019.
