Application Preparation

Description:

Based on many years of experience advising on and helping to prepare grant and funding applications and pitches, Lighthouse can be part of your team.  Preparing an application with a chance of success is a time consuming and often frustrating task.  We work with you to simplify the process by sharing tips and well-established techniques.

 

Purpose:

To assist you to prepare and submit applications that stand out because they are focused, concise and answer the questions actually asked.  We also discuss any market research requirements that may be required to complete the application.

 

How it works:

We meet with you to discuss the project you want to submit the application for (whether grant, loan or investment funding).  During this meeting, we clarify the project description, value proposition, market viability, funding requirements and use of those funds and growth strategies.  We run through the key requirements of the application itself. We are also able to assist you to prepare your funding pitch.  We will work with you to understand the 6 key elements of a pitch, the assumptions that you need to make to ensure the pitch is believable and how you justify those assumptions.  We will take you through the financial projects and how you should present them.

Delivery:

The initial meeting and pitch practice meetings are conducted face-to-face.  Follow on meetings can be in person or virtually. Comments and feedback on drafts are managed via a shared platform such as Google docs.

 

Cost:

Hourly Fees: $150.00 (+GST)/hr (a maximum number of hours will be agreed prior to the engagement starting).
