You have identified organisations to which you may apply for innovation-related funding. The next step is the preparation of an application for funding. Most funders have a specific template that you must complete. Some, however, do not provide any guidelines in terms of funding applications.
Many funders have noted that the Eastern Cape performs poorly in the preparation of funding applications. Therefore we lose out on funding that should find its way into the regional economy. The Regional Innovation Forum (RIF) notes this phenomenon and to this end, the RIF would like to support members in preparing comprehensive and compelling funding applications.
If you are interested in participating in a funding proposal preparation workshop to be hosted by the Regional Innovation Forum, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be invited to the next workshop.
Alternatively if you require assistance in drafting a funding application, the following service providers may be contacted to provide funding application writing services. It is your (i.e. the applicant’s) responsibility to contact and contract the service provider. The Regional Innovation Forum has not assessed any of the service providers listed below and therefore will not accept responsibility for the services provided by service providers.
