ABOUT 2020 Eureka iiec

This is the 3rd time Eureka hosts the IIEC. This is an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurs to showcase their products and services in front of potential customers, business partners or investors, and get connected to the network in Australia and abroad, through Eureka global operation, i.e. Israel, Europe and Asia. This is the opportunity we offer to the 30 selected innovative businesses to pitch in an international competition and network with partners and stakeholders.


Through last year’s events, the winning teams, such as Seamless and Dr Glitter successfully obtained fund to further develop their prototype products and build business partnerships.  

Once again, we acknowledge the partnership with China-Jinan International High Level Talents Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition. Shortlisted teams of 2020 Eureka IIEC will have opportunity to enter the international competition with teams from USA, Europe and Asia to compete for additional price (up to $10,000) and gain access to business networks, partnerships and funding support. The winner of the competition will be able access designated government fund (up to $1 million, conditions apply) and business facilitation services. 

Will 2020 Eureka IIEc be different from previous iiecs?
