We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Little Giant Startup Grant! With a total value of $50,000, this Grant is all about helping one fantastic startup take their business to the next level!
Bolter has started the Little Giant Startup Grant as a way to highlight the incredible entrepreneurial spirit of Australia. With the combined $25,000 in legal fees and $25,000 in cash, our goal is to help kickstart someone’s business dream.
About the Grant
Bolter is a startup law firm that provides both expert legal advice and business strategy to help emerging businesses realise their potential.
The Little Giant Startup Grant is a competitive Grant for Australian Startup businesses and was started as a way to recognise and promote the incredible entrepreneurial spirit of Australia. The objective of the Little Giant Startup Grant is to encourage and support a startup business in the commercialisation process or launch of a minimum viable product or service within Queensland or throughout Australia.
The total value of the Little Giant Startup Grant is $50,000, consisting of $25,000 worth of legal advice from Bolter and $25,000 in cash.
We’re looking for applicants with a brilliant idea they need help getting off the ground, or businesses owners who have gotten the foundations laid but could benefit from a helpful push.
Every successful business starts with an idea, and the scariest part is those first few steps. We hope that the Little Giant Startup Grant will be the motivation that Aussie startups need to back themselves and their business.
The Little Giant Startup Grant Terms & Conditions (T&Cs) are available here.
An expression of interest phase has just kicked off, with an official application period to follow in November.
Eligible expression of interest candidates will be invited to submit an official application, with 12 semi-finalists chosen from the pool of applicants.
Our judging panel will whittle this down to the top 5 finalists who will compete for the main prize during a Pitch Night that will take place in March 2021 – with one lucky business securing themselves the $50,000 prize on the night.
The Finalists will present a pitch presentation to a panel of independent judges. The judges come from all walks of life and are a mixture of professionals and startup founders. In true suspense building fashion, we will progressively release our panel of judges in the lead up to our Pitch Night extravaganza.
Our first key panelist will be Simon Playford, the Head of Bolter’s Client Success Team. Not only does he have a passion for law, but he is heavily invested and experienced in the startup and new business legal landscape. If you don’t know much about Simon, you should check out his LinkedIn or jump over to his Bolter Bio.
Be sure to keep an eye out on this webpage for more announcements about our Pitch Night panelists!
