If you've been sitting on a great idea on how to commercialise a certain technology and you live in Sydney's west, then the NSW Government wants to throw $25,000 at you.
It's part of the government's inaugural Western Sydney Information Technology Start-Up award designed to tease out commercially viable ideas lying dormant in people's heads, garages and workshops, according to a NSW Government statement.
Kim Yeadon, Minister for Information Technology and Minister for Western Sydney, claims winners will receive the cash prize as well as professional business planning advice.
"The award is open to Western Sydney people who have a realistic, marketable and business-ready idea capable of being commercialised over a 12-month period," Yeadon said.
Entries for the IT Start-Up Award close April 30. An information session will be held tomorrow, March 12. For more information and to lodge an expression of interest form, visit www.wsitc.com.au.
