Potential opportunities need to demonstrate that they will deliver a commercial outcome with a strong business case, and outline the potential return on investment.
Katalis prioritises commercial opportunities with financial or in-kind co-contributions from the business submitting the idea. When submitting your idea to Katalis, please provide details of your planned co-contributions.
- All business opportunities supported by Katalis must be mutually beneficial to both Indonesia and Australia, supporting ‘win-win’ bilateral commercial outcomes. When submitting your idea, please explain the planned direct and indirect beneficiaries, including if they are in Indonesia or Australia, as well as broader economic, social or public benefit (if any) you are expecting beyond the commercial outcomes.
- The IA-CEPA particularly offers opportunity to deliver powerhouse activities, where the imports of one partner are used to strengthen the export competitiveness of the other partner. In your submission, you should also explain how your opportunity will target this, and increase bilateral and/or regional growth and prosperity.
Business opportunities must be a catalyst for growth. You should explain to Katalis how your opportunity is scalable, and whether it will crowd in other investors or traders from the sector or from related value chains.
Business opportunities should ideally target, include, or make a positive impact on women, people with disabilities, or other marginalised groups.
Katalis can support policy and regulatory reform to help strengthen and align commercial ecosystems. In your submission to Katalis, you should consider if your opportunity is dependent on large policy or regulatory reform under IA-CEPA, and if this change is politically feasible or practical.
Business opportunities should reflect Australia and Indonesia’s comparative advantages, so you should explain what resources from each country your opportunity will draw on (e.g., human, industry, commercial, organisational, management, institutional).
