Capital Ideas Grant Funding
The goal of Capital Ideas is a capacity building program designed to improve the quality of a social enterprise business case. Non-repayable grants of up to $2000 can be used for professional business advisory services that will increase the capacity of the enterprise to access social impact investment.
Examples of what can be funded:
- Engaging an accountant or bookkeeper to develop multi-year financial projections for your new business venture to assist with a loan application
- Engage a construction project manager to deliver a detailed costing for an expansion or re-purposing of a community space for your business
- Hire a graphic designer or digital storytelling to conduct interviews with your social enterprise clients and prepare case studies and other collateral that can be incorporated into a prospectus for investment.
- Costs associated with developing and launching an online market research survey to understand whether you are solving a real problem and/or people are willing to pay for your solution
