How the SPUR program made a difference

In their own words, grant recipients describe how the grant funding and the significant networking opportunities offered through the program contributed to their success.

"There are so many areas that the SPUR program can help start-ups. While the funding is always much-needed for start-ups, I truly believe that the network and information access is far more valuable."

Chief Executive Officer Leigh Dowie

Due Diligence Software - General Grant recipient

"The benefits of the SPUR program go far beyond the financial support. There is also a great opportunity to meet people from the different areas of Landgate and learn about all the different types of data they have, as well as meet people from Landgate’s program partners such as the Department of Finance."

Founder and Chief Executive Officer Julia Scott

XMachines Pty Ltd - General Grant recipient

"The SPUR grant supported us to develop software for our automated aerial drones for agricultural duties. It also allowed us to help farmers conduct aerial drone missions. SPUR is about working with Landgate’s helpful and encouraging staff. It helped us to gain an understanding of how to work with government agencies."
