Why do I need a grant consultant?
I can do many things by myself such as design my own logo, do my own bookkeeping or undertake my own marketing.
But I know that my time has a value and it is better employed doing high value activities in the business. Hence the reason why I outsource it.
Despite the Government’s efforts to cut red tape, grants still take a long time to write. They also can be pretty complex. There is also a big difference between submitting an application and submitting a winning application. Some of the more technical questions we know how to address are:
- How much net profit should the project generate?
- What is the optimum number of jobs created per dollar of grant?
- How will your project affect competitive neutrality?
- What is the net economic impact of the project?
Great companies with great projects will almost always get a grant, but in reality the applications that fight it out are good companies with good projects. We know what to focus on and what to leave out.
