Ideas2Market Program

Turning a smart idea into a rewarding business

The Ideas2Market program consists of two distinct face-to-face workshops (intro and masterclass) and online webinars to cater for those who are looking to start a business or progress an invention, as well as existing businesses that are looking to grow, improve and foster sustainability. These workshops are delivered by the AIC's experienced facilitators and include a range of guest speakers including patent attorneys and real-life business case studies.

In 2010 and again in 2012, the AIC commissioned an independent report which quantified Ideas2Market's value to the Queensland economy. The full report can be viewed here.
