Accelerate Small Business Grants

July 20, 2017

Do your business goals for 2017/18 include increasing employment, improving management processes and systems to increase productivity and efficiency or introducing product process or systems innovations? Perhaps you are keen to enter new markets or simply increase turnover and sales.

The Queensland Government is providing $3 million in grant funding over three years to established Queensland-based small businesses to engage an advisory board or independent advisor, for between 6–12 months.

The Accelerate Small Business Grants Program provides targeted assistance to small businesses that demonstrate high-growth and employment aspirations, to engage high-level expertise in their business for an extended period.

Matching funding of up to $10,000 (excluding GST) may be provided to eligible businesses to engage business mentors, coaches, or an advisory board, for between 6–12 months. The funding must be matched by a cash contribution from the participating business.

Two grant payments will be made directly to the business, with 50% paid on grant approval and a further 50% paid on successful completion of the project.

More information is available from the Queensland Small Business website here and please speak to us about how we can assist with this fantastic opportunity.
