Queensland social entrepreneurs are set to receive a booster shot.
The Queensland Government’s Social Enterprise Grants Program will provide between $5000 to $50,000 to social enterprises, enabling access to professional advice and support in the critical early stages of establishing and growing a business, and to assist in testing ideas in the market or using technology to achieve reach and mission.
Social enterprises can be non-profit, for-profit or hybrid businesses that exist to benefit the public and community and are established to address a range of cultural, social and environmental issues.
To be eligible for a grant, social enterprises must be based in Queensland and:
- be led by an economic, social, cultural or environmental mission consistent with a public or community benefit
- trade to fulfil their mission and derive more than 50% of their income from trade, and
- reinvest the majority of any profit or surplus into the fulfilment of their mission.
For full eligibility guidelines, terms and conditions visit the program’s website.
Grant applications close Monday 2 December 2019.
