Up to $20,000 is available to support entrepreneurs that can demonstrate positive financial and social outcomes for the community in which they operate.
The Beyond Bank Community Entrepreneur Program supports innovation across all areas including technology, social and general business.
The Beyond Bank Community Entrepreneur Program rewards entrepreneurs with grants and access to support networks in order to assist and realise their dreams that promote local economic development. The grant is offered twice a year to support people and businesses that are looking to create good outcomes that benefit the local community by offering new employment opportunities.
Grants of up to $20,000 per individual application are available. Total investments per region are subject to approval by the Beyond Bank Foundation. Up to $30,000 will be approved each year for each of our regions for a total investment of up to $180,000 p.a.
Beyond Bank will look positively upon projects from entrepreneurs which demonstrate positive economic outcomes and employment for the local community. Assessments will also consider capability and confidence in getting to market and producing desired results.
The new business grants will be available at the concept, pre-launch or post-launch stages of projects and are open to a range of ventures including those proposed by entrepreneurs of all ages, social entrepreneurs, community organisations or existing businesses.
Applicants are asked to outline key components of their business plans, understanding of their chosen market and drivers behind their ability to meet their business goals.
