How we intend to get this funding

At Bulletpoint, our strategy for navigating substantial funding opportunities like the Australian Centre for Quantum Growth program is distinct and effective.

We believe in a reverse-engineering approach to grant applications – starting with the end goal in mind and working backwards to assemble the ideal consortium.

Our focus is squarely on aligning with what the government seeks to fund, ensuring that our proposals meet their criteria precisely and comprehensively.

Our partners are carefully selected for their proven expertise and reliability in their respective areas.

By choosing partners who are already established and low-risk, we significantly enhance the consortium’s chances of securing the grant.

We understand that a strong consortium is more than just a group of partners; it’s a strategic alignment of capabilities and track records.

A crucial part of our process is collaborating with the consortium to decide on the most suitable funding model. This includes recommending who should lead the application.

Contrary to conventional practices, the lead applicant in our consortiums is not determined by order or size, but by their capacity to effectively secure the grant and deliver the promised outcomes.

We identify the member who is best equipped, not just in terms of securing funding, but also in terms of executing the project successfully, backed by a proven track record.

Our methodology is not about fitting partners into a pre-defined solution, but rather constructing a solution that best fits the grant’s objectives and our partners’ strengths. This approach ensures that our applications are compelling, targeted, and have a higher likelihood of success.

We invite you to collaborate with us in this endeavour and leverage our expertise in grant applications.

Alternatively, you can choose to compete against us – a decision that might mean spending your summer holidays in the office, working on your application!

Reach out to Bulletpoint for a partnership that aligns with your goals and enhances your chances of securing this prestigious funding.
