Winning government business
The Tasmanian and Australian Governments are committed to ensuring businesses are aware of opportunities to tender for government business.
The government is getting behind and backing small business by delivering the Winning Government Business Program.
Our new Introduction to Business Grant Writing Workshops are about to start. Applying for grants can be daunting so we'll explain the tricky bits and make the process clearer.
Whether you're new to grant writing or have applied for grants in the past, the workshop will help you understand how the submission process works through practical and interactive activities.
The session will cover
- The Tasmanian Governments new business grants writing handbook
- how to find grants you're eligible for
- what's involved in putting together an application
- how to make your application stand out
We're holding the same event twice in each location, one in business hours and one in the evening, so as many people as possible can attend. Choose the time and place that suits you best and book your place.
Tues 21 Nov 6.00pm - 7.30pm
Wed 22 Nov 6.00pm - 7.30pm
