Workshops – Funding Avenues for Small Business

posted in: News | 0

What funding options are out there for small business?

In partnership with the Scone Chamber of Commerce and Industry, this workshop has been designed to help small businesses identify some of the options available to them around funding. There are many mixed messages around grants, initiatives, funding streams and products. Finding the right type of funding whether it be private or government can be full of pitfalls around eligibility and accountability. You will leave the session with a clearer picture of the funding landscape.

You will learn:

  • Demystifying government funding. – searches, frauds and traps
  • Federal incentives around R&D and commercialisation
  • State & local government initiatives
  • Offerings from financial institutions
  • Crowd funding options

Who should attend?

Small business owners who need to grow or are looking for new opportunities and people introducing innovative new products, processes or services.

Topic Specialist: Martin McKenzie has worked in all levels of government and has administered grant funding programmes over a broad range of sectors including capital works, clean technology environment, innovation and education.
