VenturePro provides an advisory service catering to organisations planning new research collaboration initiatives or seeking funding for research programs, new initiatives, new technology ventures, or new research or healthcare infrastructure. We work closely with clients to conduct the early planning for new collaborative research or commercialisation initiatives and to prepare funding submissions, business cases, economic impact assessments and budgets. Working closely with research and industry collaborators, we prepared the successful bids for the Autism CRC and the Wound Management Innovation CRC and have assisted several other CRC bids in the preparation of their Impact Tool.
We have a proven track record of successfully assisting clients across a diverse range of sectors to secure over $790 million in government and private funding for our clients. This includes $230 million from Queensland Government programs, $510 million from Australian Government programs, and over $50 million from private sources. The average amount of direct funding secured for our clients’ projects is $10.2 million, and we have a 78% success rate on those projects where we play a direct role in the planning for and drafting of the submission.

WINGMATE designs a variety of Data Management and Electronic Control Systems based on the in house developed Real Time Operating System.
Our products are completely customisable, making them pre-eminently suitable to use as small series prototypes. This has proven to be a very important step to bridge the gap between research outcomes and industrial production.
We offer expert knowledge in data collection and analysis, CAN communication, engine control strategies and motorsport including Formula 1 and Red Bull Air Racing.
Applications for our Data systems include hybrid and electric vehicles usage, driver behaviour tracking, industrial engines, M2M projects, light and race airplanes. Our Control systems have been used in sprinkler systems, solar hot water and Engine Management Systems for diesel engine research.
