The QuantumTX 2024 Queensland METS Technology Incubator Program is now accepting applications.

Participation is free through a competitive application process for the program, which offers a 12-week journey to 15 startup and scaleup Queensland businesses.

Participants will gain access to mining companies, business training, mentoring, and a variety of business experts.

QuantumTX stands as the largest METS sector incubator in the Southern Hemisphere. The program is co-funded by the Queensland government.

Having provided over $4 million of support to 164 startups and SMEs across Australia, it offers a significant platform for growth and strongly encourages Indigenous businesses to apply.

Guburn woman Kyra Galante has two decades of experience in the mining sector and has been an advocate for First Nations X, a pathway provided by Qantum Tech X

"We need more Indigenous businesses to focus on those future economies, to be sustainable," she said.

"And we need to be inclusive around access to those opportunities."

Participants will have the opportunity to engage with over 50 experts from leading companies, meet potential capital investors and collaborators, and receive mentorship from senior experts nationally.

Key speakers include representatives from Rio Tinto, BHP, Nova Systems, Hitachi, Oz Minerals, Q-Metco, Robotics Australia Group, AROSE, Imdex, Perenti, Microsoft, Fugro, Austrade, The Office of Defence Innovation, CSIRO, and the Australian Space Agency.

Quantum TX's Program Director, Kylah Morrison said the program makes "direct introductions to industry and potential export pathways as businesses scale up, which is one of the best ways to increase national competitiveness".

"Late stage TRL researchers are also encouraged to apply and commercialise with industry support," she said.

"Prominent companies in all major Queensland sectors support Quantum TX with a particular focus on new and innovative solutions, solutions from the regions and from our First Nations people."

For startups and SMEs eager to embark on a transformative journey of growth and success, applications for the QuantumTX accelerator program are now open. The QuantumTX program is funded by the Queensland Government and corporate support.
