Here for Gladstone

The Rio Tinto Here for Gladstone Community Fund (Here for Gladstone) was established in 2002. Here for Gladstone promotes active partnerships within the Gladstone community and seeks to support community-based projects.

In December 2019, the Here for Gladstone Advisory Board approved the proposal to develop an innovation focused programme to support individuals and business with an innovative commercial concept and/or product through a mentor-based programme.

The Innovator Programme will be available to selected applicants with an identifiable innovative commercial concept and/or product. Participants will complete a mentor led programme that aims to assist them in further developing their innovative idea through the design, product development and scale-up stage in order to successfully launch their commercialised product and/or concept.

The Programme will involve the following stages:

    • Promotion – Activities associated with the promotion and recruitment of candidates into the programme.
    • Assessment – Assessment of applications, and initial assessment of individual development plan requirements for successful applicants;
    • Module Delivery – Assistance provided to successful applicants through mentor led modules aimed at meeting individual development plan requirements
    • Product Development Plan – Assistance provided to successful applicants to assist them to develop and complete their Product Development Plan and Prospectus
    • Gate Review – Detailed review and feedback of Product Development Plan by Here for Gladstone Gate Review Panel; and
    • Approval – Successful applicants may receive further financial and other assistance from the Company to support them to commercialise and/or launch their product

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced individuals and/or organisations to undertake program management services to deliver the programme in partnership with Here for Gladstone.
