Ipswich City Council launches a unique cohort-based defence industry scale-up program


Your opportunity to register and participate at the Operation Scale-Up 2021.

Applications are now open for Ipswich City Council’s Operation Scale-Up 2021, a cohort-based pilot program aimed at supporting regional businesses to become defence industry-ready.

Successful businesses, who will gain entry via an application process, , will receive one-on-one mentoring from defence industry partners, including Rheinmetall Defence Australia, Boeing Defence Australia, Raytheon Australia, Northrup Grumman Australia, Airbus Australia and RUAG Australia.

With only limited (24) places available in the first round, participants will have the opportunity to become defence industry ready by developing an action plan with guidance provided by the defence industry partner over business mentoring sessions.

Operation Scale-Up 2021 is brought to you by Ipswich City Council in collaboration with defence industry partners. This initiative is proudly supported by the City of Ipswich Defence Industry Development and Attraction Committee (CIDIDAC), the Department of Defence, Queensland Government and AIDN Qld.
