About the program

The Testing Within Government (TWiG) program allows small to medium enterprises (SMEs) to improve the positioning of their products by working collaboratively with Queensland Government on a number of business problems. Successful applicants received funding to test and refine their product with government while addressing real business problems.

At the end of the 12-week program, applicants had the 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 was an opportunity for SMEs to develop knowledge, skills and experience, improving the potential to access broader commercial opportunities in Queensland, Australia and internationally.

The final event was held in December 2018 for the SMEs, together with Queensland Government business experts, to showcase the products, lessons learned and experience gained during the program.

Round three funding recipients

Four SMEs were awarded funding in the 2018 round of the TWiG Program.

Round two funding recipients

Funding was awarded to 11 SMEs through the 2017 round of the TWiG Program.

The 2017 TWiG program culminated on 15 September with a showcase event where local businesses presented their innovative solutions, lessons learned and experience gained during the program.
