Innovation is the talk of the town at the moment, and after hosting our latest hackathon, the HBF Activate program, along with Unearthed having been inspiring innovation in hackathons over East just recently, we have another innovative program we want to share with you. This program aligns with the vision of Spacecubed and FLUX, supporting entrepreneurs and providing opportunities for business growth - find out more here.
The Beyond Bank Entrepreneur Program is now taking applications up until Friday 30th September and you, your business or community project could be the recipient of a very generous $50,000 grant.
The program, run by the community owned Beyond Bank, will support innovation in the fields of technology, creating social outcomes or in general business. Since the year 2007, Beyond Bank Foundation has invested over $8 million into local communities, particularly supporting health and social enterprises. However, with the recent demand for innovation in Australia in 2016, the decision was made to once again promote the Entrepreneurial Grant and we know many of our community coworkers will definitely be applying for, and possibly benefit from, this brilliant scheme.
“We understand that one thing that entrepreneurs need is support - and not just financially. That's why we have designed our entrepreneur program to not only deliver financial assistance - but to help bring together a network that can help entrepreneurs,” said Beyond Bank Community Development Manager Katie Tillson.
More than a grant, an opportunity for more
Grants are now available for companies of all stages, shapes and sizes, meaning concept stage, pre-launch and post-launch stage projects, businesses and startups alike can all apply for Beyond Bank’s Entrepreneurial grant. However the grant isn’t simply monetary, Entrepreneurs will also receive access to local support networks, access to experts and insight to help you and your business grow, scale and succeed.
