Sensis are offering eligible small businesses in Tasmania the opportunity to participate in a grant funding round of $80,000, spread over eight $10,000 grants in four categories. These grants are easy to apply for, only requiring 500 words or less in your application.
The grants are designed to help businesses raise their game by financing business tools and innovation. Each category has a question that you need to answer in 500 words or less, and you only need to address one question (the most applicable to your business) to apply for the grant. The questions:
1) Customer Service
In 500 words or less tell them why your business stands above its competition in customer service and what you would do to step this up further with a $10,000 boost?
2) Innovation & Technology
In 500 words or less tell them how your company has been innovative, or how technology has changed the way you do business. How would you use a $10,000 grant to advance this further?
3) Start Up & Emerging Business (Up to 3 years old)
In 500 words or less tell them what your start up or emerging business would do to step it up in Tasmania with the help of a $10,000 business grant?
