Intended to complement and leverage other local, state and national services, this consultation service is provided across the whole of Queensland via face to face, phone and on-line options as required.  A key aim of the program is to enhance innovation collaborations by helping to match innovators with appropriate potential buyers, sellers and collaborators of new ideas (e.g. with researchers, related businesses along the supply chain, within locations, or across industries).

Through this service, Queensland Government aims to help increase innovation activity and business investment in collaborative innovation by providing easy and free access to knowledge, skills and connections for innovators, entrepreneurs and inventors, leading to an increase in successful commercialisation of ideas for the benefit of the economy.

Access to additional information, connections and guidance during the innovation phase can help reduce innovation development costs, reduce time from idea conception to commercialisation, and lead to innovations that are better tailored to market needs, deliver faster uptake of new products or services, driving increased, sustainable sales and higher margins, building local enterprises and a healthier economy for Queenslanders.
