Innovation Launch

Innovation is how we shape and build a better NSW. It’s time for government and innovators to work together to make it happen.

We have attempted this in the past and have learned a lot. Through open and active engagement with innovators and entrepreneurs, we have heard feedback about what worked well with programs like the Premier’s Innovation Initiative, and what we need to do better. Going forward, we will make sure we have clearly defined problems and transparency for where your proposal sits in our process. 

The Innovation Launch program provides seed funding (subject to selection criteria) for transformative ideas that can be shown to deliver public value. We’re looking for proposals that test or prove new capabilities, technologies, models, processes and practices. And we’ll prioritise those that can be scaled or replicated across government.



We're testing this new program and will invite your feedback along the way. 



Our Smart Cities & Accessibility challenge is now open.
