Minimum Viable product explainer. NSW based grant for startups.

Minimum Viable Product

What is it?

Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is a NSW based competitive grant funding programme for start-ups and SMEs. The MVP programme is focused on the development of an innovative technological solution to the stage where basic functionality can be demonstrated to a potential customer, end-user or channel to market. Your product or service must be ultimately for sale to multiple customers, rather than being developed for in-house purposes. B2B and B2B2C solutions are eligible. B2B2C solutions are eligible if there is a business, industry group, aggregator or representative organisation/club, interfaced between the applicant business and the end customer that can validate your MVP.

How much?

Up to $25,000, 50% of approved project cost.

Who is eligible?

  • Have an ABN registered in NSW and be based in NSW.
  • The business entity must be at pre-revenue stage.
  • Have a completed proof of concept (e.g. customer interviews, surveys, or focus groups).
  • Have a potential business customer (B2B) or business channel to market (B2C).
  • Have a scalable solution that can be deployed to multiple customers.
  • Hold IP or the rights to commercialise.
  • Demonstrate that 80% of development costs will occur in NSW.
