New Grants

Small Business Grants Program provided by the City of Melbourne has its information session this Thursday. Grants provided by this program are a great opportunity for small business to receive some additional funding.

Interesting to note, that in the August 2008 small business grant round 73 applications were received by the closing date, 18 August 2008 with over half of the applications for the start up category.

Small Business Grants applications were received in the following categories:

  • start up (46),
  • business expansion (23),
  • export entry (2)
  • business support services (2).

Treadstone advises potential applicants to review the winners from last year to see how they could be unique and attractive to judges. The other tip we would give to potential applications is to start the application as soon as possible and allow at least 20 hours of your time if you want to win.
