Do you have the best/worst business idea ever? - Free entry - register via link below - Beer & Pizza (we'll ask you to chip in a few $ to help cover costs) - 10 most awesome ideas will have 3 mins to pitch - as decided at the door. - Best idea of the night goes home with $1000
Location: York Butter Factory, King St, Melbourne CBD Time: 6pm-8pm Date: Thursday 30th July
We're all into one thing; seeing good ideas go far.
Overview: Applications are open to all awesome projects, we are an active chapter which awards a $1000 grant on the last Tuesday of each month (Applications close 12pm on the last Tuesday).
Please read the information below to give you application the best chance of success.
Innovative, exciting and unusual ideas
Ideas that clearly explain where the money will be spent (*Hint 'marketing' isn't specific enough)
Ideas that have the potential to go far (check out past grant recipients for inspiration)
Ideas filled with passion and purpose
Projects where the grant is a catalyst kickstart something awesome
We are not so keen on:
Funding rent or living expenses
Funding marketing for existing projects
Funding travel expenses
Proposals that are not clear what the impact would be of the grant
Bonus hint: Arguably the most important question is 'How will you use the money?' make sure you take some time to be really clear and specific about what the grant would be spent on and what that would achieve.
