Applications are now open for the Non-Devolved PreSeed Accelerator Fund (PreSeed), a Government initiative that aims to supports the commercialisation of publicly-funded research.
The PreSeed Fund is designed to support research organisations in progressing early stage commercialisation of new ideas towards a point of investor-readiness, enabling a greater economic return on New Zealand’s science system.
The non-devolved stream of the PreSeed Fund is specifically for public or not-for-profit research organisations, or collectives of organisations, that do not hold a devolved PreSeed contract.
Up to $879,898 is available over three years through the non-devolved fund, an increase compared to previous years that recognises the impressive commercialisation outcomes the initiative has already achieved.
Funding is available through an on-demand process.
