One of the most effective things you can do in looking for grant funding is to start by Googling the things your business does and getting an overview of what kind of grants are out there. This will help you understand the ecosystem of grantors in your space.
Following the rules for the grant application is one of the most important parts of securing funding. If you put in a great application but you don’t follow the rules, it’s getting booted and put in the trash can.
In summary, there are a few main things you want to do when trying to secure grant funding. Start by doing your research, and understanding the ecosystem of grantors for your space. Align yourself with their strategic goals. After that, make sure you’re following all the rules on your application. Finally, be real, be honest, use clear, concise language, and make human connections.
