Early Commercialisation Fund

Idea Funding

The South Australian Early Commercialisation Fund (SAECF) announced on 18 November 2016 is a new SA State Government grant program established to assist South Australia’s entrepreneurs and innovative organisations looking to commercialise novel products and services.

The four-year, $10 million South Australian Early Commercialisation Fund (SAECF) will provide eligible companies and organisations with seed grants of less than $50,000 and up to $300,000 at early commercialisation stage, with matched funding required in most cases.

For start-up entrepreneurs looking for early stage funding, the SAECF provides an avenue to develop ideas that have national and global market potential.

The flexibility of the program enables early-stage companies to access sizable grants necessary to accelerate their ideas into key markets.

The SAECF will provide eligible companies and organisations with grants of up to $300,000 + GST with matched funding required in most cases.

The SAECF will be administered by TechInSA and DSD.
