Over the last few days, we prepared an Expression of Interest for the Ignite Ideas grant fund. This is a Queensland Government grant for small and medium-sized businesses. This is a medium-sized grant, which could make a huge difference to the rollout of the platform.
The grant would fund:
(i) Social media promotion of the platform, membership, disability entrepreneurship and how the platform could support members to pursue their entrepreneurial aspirations and potential.
(ii) Engagement of Griffith University researchers
(iii) Programming work.
(iv) Digital animation for the platform.
(v) Digital artwork for the platform.
(vii) Advice from the digital consultancy firm Digital8.
(ix) Advice from the strategic consultancy firm Mindhive.
This is part of our ongoing efforts to raise sufficient funds to allow us to start operating the platform and to assist Australians who live with a disability to pursue their money-generating aspirations and potential.
