Austrade and the Australian Space Agency are currently seeking expressions of interest from Australian space businesses to attend the 36th Annual Colorado Space Symposium, as part of the Australian Space Industry Delegation.

To encourage and support the participation of NSW space businesses in the delegation, NSW Treasury will run a competitive process to subsidise costs associated with attending the event for NSW start-ups and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that have been selected for the delegation.

There will be two funding streams available, with eligibility assessed by NSW Treasury based on the criteria outlined below.

Stream 1

Funding of $2,500 (plus GST) for SMEs to subsidise event registration costs to attend the Space Symposium.

Criteria:

  • Be an SME with an annual turnover of less than $25 million.
  • Be a legal entity with a presence in NSW and operating for more than two years.
  • Show clear and beneficial business objectives for attending the event.
  • Have capabilities in line with NSW Government priorities.
  • Demonstrate a need for support.

Stream 2

Funding of $5,000 (plus GST) for start-ups to subsidise registration and travel costs to attend the Space Symposium.

Criteria:

  • Be a start-up with up to 10 employees.
  • Be a legal entity with a presence in NSW and operating for more than one year.
  • Show clear and beneficial business objectives for attending the event.
  • Have capabilities in line with NSW Government priorities.
  • Demonstrate a need for support.

Once the Australian Space Industry Delegation has been selected by Austrade and the Australian Space Agency, NSW Treasury will be in touch with the successful NSW delegates about potential funding.

This is a fantastic opportunity to attend one of the most important space industry events of the year, all while being backed and supported by the Australian and NSW Governments.

As there is a limited funding pool, applications will be assessed on merit.
