[SB106] De-mystifying the Grant Application Process
Do you have a great social impact business idea? Or is your business at a stage where you could use an infusion of capital? Do you need the money to start your business or project, scale your activities or broaden your impact? Enterprises that make a positive social impact have access to many funding opportunities from across the world. You can check out the Capturing Opportunities module to find opportunities for awards, grants, and competitions that you may be interested in. This course is designed to help you navigate and de-mystify the grant funding application process. The process can be long and overwhelming but ultimately could be rewarding! The key is to get across the importance of your idea, the work you do, your passion and dedication to a cause that can make a difference in people’s lives. One of the important features of the startup support provided by the Youth Co:Lab Springboard Programme is nominating and assisting social enterprises to apply to various opportunities, like awards, competitions, challenges and grant applications. So far, the Springboard team has made 580 nominations for various Social Enterprises and founders to different opportunities, assisted in 45 applications. 2.1M USD has been raised by Social Enterprises as a result of direct support from the Youth Co:Lab team.
