Tips to Secure Funding

The Manufacturing Modernisation Fund had over 2,500 applicants with only 200 being successful. In other words, only 8% of applications were awarded the $50 million in available funding. Grants and government funding are going to be critical in helping the economy bounce back especially after COVID-19. In turn, the competitive nature of grants will also be heightened. So how can your application stand out from the crowd? Where do you begin with grant writing and what are the expectations? This webinar will share information about how to write a grant that will get noticed and give you a better chance of securing funding. Presenting this webinar will be Shelena Serrano of Silver Sponsor, Vekta Automation, who recently helped a FTMA member secure funding.

This webinar is targeted at your: Business Owners/Managers and HR

Wednesday 23rd September @ 2.00pm
