Six Steps to More Successful Grant Applications

Presented by Sharon Hunneybell

Leveraging grant funding can be a smart way to progress and grow your business, but how do you know which grants are suitable for your organisation and how do you ensure that your application will meet the funding criteria and stand out to assessors?

The Advance Queensland Ignite Ideas program is designed to help startups and small-to-medium businesses scale up great innovations for commercial success

This 2 hour workshop is for any business owner that is currently considering applying for a grant, or anyone that has previously been unsuccessful in applying for a grant to understand the best formula for future success.

We will share tips for:
- Identifying grants that are suitable for your business
- Understanding the objectives of the funding party
- Stepping into the mind of a grant assessor
- Setting realistic goals and milestones
- Providing evidence of support for your project
- Reviewing your application before submitting
