Make sure you take into account the time and effort you’ll have to put into each grant application you submit. Some businesses pretty much run on grants, so the application process is accepted as a necessary ongoing cost of marketing. Other companies might come up with the same money faster by just getting out there and making sales. Don`t forget that these financial assistance’s are available on deadlines and quotas.
People applying for grants often get overwhelmed by the multitude of departments, and programs offering grants to Canadian businesses. Often they don’t know how to apply, and end up surfing the web for grants that look appealing, and ultimately end up applying for programs they won’t qualify for, or not even applying at all. They regularly conclude that they will have no chance of getting a grant and stop applying all together.
This mentality is wrong. Do not let yourself become discouraged. There are three prime reasons why individuals don’t succeed in obtaining a grant: Poor choice of grants, Unprofessional and half-hearted application, and long winded searches that lead to dead ends.
Here are some Grant tips we’ve put together for you to read before you start your search:
