Qld Govt Grants for Small Business

Queensland Government Business Basics Grant
Starting 31 May 2021!
Aussie Made: Support, Strategic Consultancy and Development

Up to $5K in a Government Grant to increase core skills and adopt best practice

The Queensland State Government have made available funding for small businesses (and micro-businesses) to help them to "increase core skills and adopt best practice".

The initiative is called the Business Basics Grants Program.

These are grants of up to $5,000.00 paid to you by Qld Government, and unlike previous Qld Govt small business grants there is NO NEED for you to MATCH  FUNDS with your own contribution.

The funds can be used towards the following (we have highlighted services with which we can help):

  • Training and coaching
  • Website build or upgrades
  • Professional business advice
  • Strategic marketing services
  • Business continuity and succession.

Improve your business NOW!

If you have a small business with less than 20 employees, with an ABN, are headquartered in Queensland, and a turnover of less than $300K in the current financial year ... you could get a leg-up from the government for things like:

  • Moving your office servers into a professional data centre
  • website for your business (or adding online self-service to an existing site)
  • private mobile app or website for your workers to perform their jobs better or remotely (e.g. a timesheeting or safety checklist app)
  • A mobile app for iOS or Android to help your customers engage with your business
  • An online store
  • Adding the ability for your existing clients to pay their bills online through your website
  • Setting up and maintaining a social media page/feed (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, SnapChat, etc)
  • Training or consultancy for yourself or your staff to learn how to use technology better for your business

What do I do to apply ?

It's easy ....

  1. Talk to us (tap here or the "Chat" button to the right) to work out costs and what's possible
  2. Go to the Qld Government Business Basics Grant page and check your eligibility (and apply)
  3. Wait for a decision
  4. Make your business smarter! :-)

To help you take advantage of this initiative, we have come up with some excellent options that fall well within the grant budget to give you the best bang for your government buck!

The funding round goes from 31/5/21 until 30/6/21, but Qld Govt say that they may close it without warning once they have received enough applications to make their competitive assessment decisions, so if you're interested in improving your business, give us a shout and also check out the Business Basics Grant web page.

And don't forget: if you have a mobile app or web application idea you may like to apply for our very own Creative Intersection "Bright Idea Grant" for app ideas
