– A network of participating public and private research institutes including Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy, Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics, BSES, CSIRO, the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center and Landcare Research
– Follow-on financing round options from the founding investors and their networks once companies “graduate” from the accelerator
