Qantas AVRO innovation grants - call for applications

18 Apr 2017

Qantas has a long history of innovation and in 97 years they’ve paved a history of aviation firsts. In today’s market place the need for continuous innovation is clear. That’s why they have created the AVRO Accelerator program, an initiative giving start-ups the chance to work with Qantas Group mentors to pitch ideas to streamline the travel experience, design smarter ways of working, unlock the potential of new technologies and help solve business problems.

Up to 10 teams will be chosen for the program. As well as access to Qantas and industry mentors, participants will be able to tap into some of the Qantas Group’s operational data, technology platforms and anonymised customer insights to bring their ideas to life.

The 12-week program has been designed in partnership with Slingshot, Australia’s first and most experienced corporate accelerator program.

Qantas is calling on the brightest minds in the university community to help with their innovation program. Applications close on the 27th April. More information on the program and applications can be found on the website at
