The Funds invest in translating Australian research into new companies that solve the greatest challenges in health, food, space, transport, security and decarbonisation.

Main Sequence was created by CSIRO to address the ‘valley of death’ between research and commercialisation. It solves the world’s greatest challenges by turning our scientific breakthroughs into the next century’s giants. 

The first CSIRO Innovation Fund, managed by Main Sequence, has invested in 26 companies since it was formed in 2017. These companies have created 550 jobs by working with partners in industry, CSIRO, and 16 Australian universities. 

Main Sequence’s origins within CSIRO reflect its commitment to amplifying connections between industry, research and infrastructure to accelerate deep technology development, and reinvesting economic returns from commercialisation back into science. 

Companies created with CSIRO include Coviu telehealth platform, Emesent drone technology, RapidAim biosecurity solution, v2food alternative protein, and Nourish Ingredients
