Go Carterton’s Growth Fund is open for applications! What’s the grant for? It’s a small boost of cash to take away a problem that’s stopping you from being successful in your business or to put it another way, to help your business grow!
Go Carterton would like to encourage and support the growth of existing businesses in our town and the attraction of new businesses to Carterton. That’s why we created the Go Carterton Growth Fund, a contestable grant that’s available to members and non-members to boost their business. We make 2 awards of $1000 each, twice per year. Applications are reviewed by an impartial committee of the Go Carterton executive team. Grant recipients are asked to present to the committee once the award is made and the activity underway.
The two successful applicants from Round 1 were Rae Matheson Ltd and Wairarapa Dream Clean Ltd. They stood out for their well thought out business plans, and the unique ways they would grow their businesses as a result of the grant.
What would your business do with $1000? Here's some ideas but it's over to you. Maybe you need to;
You get the idea! This is not for business as usual costs or for unpaid bills, sorry. Applications close the 30th September.
Round 2 2019 applications are open from 1st September - 30th September 2019:
Ts and Cs: Submitting this form confirms your application for the Go Carterton Growth Fund (Round 2 2019) and acceptance of these terms. If you wish to withdraw your application, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications open on 1st September 2019 and close on 30th September 2019. Announcements of winners will be made in October 2019 and published in the Go Carterton newsletter and social channels. You therefore understand that if you are a winner, agreed company details and an agreed outline of the project will be made public. All applicants will be contacted prior to the announcement to explain the decision reached by the committee on your project. Please note that any applications requesting funds for business as usual costs or for unpaid bills will be removed from consideration. The decision of the Go Carterton Committee is final. The award is for $1000 NZD and will be credited to the bank account noted in the application. 2 winners will be selected in this round. Winners also receive membership of Go Carterton, if not already a member (existing members are not eligible for any refund of fees paid) Members and non-members of Go Carterton may apply. Winners are required to report back required to the committee face to face, and provide a short written report at the end of the ‘project’
