About Testing Within Government
The TWiG Program allows Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) improve the positioning of their products by working collaboratively with Queensland Government on a number of business problems. Successful applicants will receive funding to test and refine their product while addressing real business problems.
At the end of the 12-week program applicants have an opportunity to showcase their products and their TWiG program experience to a wide group of government and industry representatives.
Being part of the TWiG program is an opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and experience, improving the potential to access broader commercial opportunities in Queensland, Australia and internationally.
The 2016 TWiG program culminated on 7 December with a showcase event where local businesses presented their innovative solutions, lessons learned and experience gained during the program.
The SMEs awarded funding for the 2016 TWiG program are:
- Axalon—a modern self-service solution to publish and access environmental data.
- Vuid—a more efficient way to manage access to ICT systems across large organisations.
- MacroGIS and FlowBiz—an innovative crowdsourcing solution for collecting mobile coverage information.
- Liquid State—a cloud-based solution to improve the effectiveness of writing and editing documents across large, complex organisations.

At the showcase event, Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy and Minister for Small Business, Leeanne Enoch, announced another TWiG program for 2017.
