Our How-to-Series are monthly classes that will elevate you from zero to hero in a chosen topic as we bring experts and leaders in the Zoom room.
How-to in September:
Have you noticed that more and more potential grant funding for MSMEs are on the rise as organisations channel their efforts to supporting small businesses to survive the pandemic’s effects? This is especially true for ventures whose goals are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But who has any clue on how to write these proposals? These organisations certainly have a totally different “language” don’t they?
For this September’s class, we’re organising a panel of three who can guide the class on how to write grant proposals that may get you that funding you desperately need!
