"elevate61 was an awesome program, we learnt a huge amount that we will use to make our business much better than it would have been without the program. I am extremely grateful to KPMG & Advance for making it happen." - Paul Moynagh, Business Development Director, Fewizon

Advance and KPMG Australia have formed a strategic alliance to help fast track Australian entrepreneurs and enable growth and productivity for globally competitive industries.

Our vision for elevate61 is to help shape and empower Australia’s entrepreneurial eco-system, leading to high value job creation and corporate and social growth for Australia.

Australia’s entrepreneurs will be given a rare opportunity to fast track their business growth and take on the world, thanks to this new alliance between a global non-profit and corporation.

Target industries for the program are agriculture, energy and natural resources, financial services, healthcare, infrastructure, telcommunications and media and technology.

For the first time the complementary international business and advisory networks, technical expertise and global experience of the two organisations will be integrated and made accessible to the ‘best of the best’ Australian entrepreneurs, through a new program known as elevate61.

elevate61 is the third business innovation initiative from Advance, and part of its highly successful Advance Innovation Program launched in 2012. The program has been renamed elevate61, to reflect the Advance and KPMG Australia strategic alliance.
