Here are some recent successes

Ovira was founded by Alice Williams, a 27-year old endometriosis sufferer who was inspired to create the new device after years of searching for a pain-management options.

The project will include construction of five new football fields, a new synthetic hockey pitch and athletics track, and eight new netball courts, together with upgrades to existing multipurpose fields. New lighting, pavilions and improved spectator amenities feature in most elements of the project.

I love government grants! No one knows more about them than me.

Despite the Government’s efforts to cut red tape, grants still take a long time to write and prepare.
They can also be pretty complex.

There is also a big difference between submitting ‘an application’ and submitting a ‘winning application’. I am to simplify the grant application process so that you can concentrate on running your business.

Why does the government commercialisation?

The objectives of the the commercialisation program are to:

  • Boost Competitiveness and improve productivity across the Australian economy
  • Provide businesses with more predictable, less complex support
  • Improve the ability for smaller firms to engage in research and development incentive.

About Me

I started Bulletpoint as I love working with small businesses and helping them grow. I noticed how Government Grants can transform good businesses into great businesses.
