What is ON Prime?

ON Prime is our entry level, part-time pre-accelerator that helps research teams validate their research and discover a real world application for it. We provide you with an opportunity to test paths for your IP, know-how or tech through a process of customer discovery and market validation, and help you unlock your entrepreneurial nous required to take your work to the next level.

All teams who participate in ON Prime will have access to our experienced Facilitators and 80+ strong ON Mentor network of business leaders, entrepreneurs who've been there and done it before.

What does participating in ON Prime involve?

ON embraces a get-out-of-the-building approach to learning, by encouraging hands-on, practical learning and business model development.

The commitment to ON Prime is approximately five face-to-face sessions (six days in total) and ten hours' commitment per team member across eight weeks. In addition to this, each program culminates in a final 'Showcase' event that profiles teams and includes an assessment of the team's Investment Readiness Level (IRL) by the head coach. Eligible teams will then be invited to apply for ON Accelerate.

Teams selected into ON Prime have the opportunity to earn up to $5,000 as performance bonus throughout the program. And the good news is, all IP and equity remains the property of the team or their sponsoring institute.

For each ON Prime round, several hubs will be delivered concurrently across Australia. Exact locations will be dependent on application demand and successful team home locations.

Which hub is for me?

In 2017, ON Prime3 will offer four different types of Prime hubs -General ON Prime, ON Prime: Defence, ON Prime:Cyber or ON Prime: Northern Australia.

Important dates

  • Applications for ON Prime3, ON Prime: Defence, ON Prime: Cyber and ON Prime: Northern Australia closed Friday 28 July 2017.
  • Successful teams will be notified in August 2017
  • All ON Prime3 and themed Prime (Defence, Cyber, Northern Australia) course dates will be confirmed when the successful teams are announced.
