Grants offered by The South African Departments of Trade and Industry and of Small Business Development provide a wide range of support programmes. Running a business is never easy. But it’s impossible without funding. Business Grant Solutions can set you up for success. Government offers a range of business grants, money to start your business—could anything be better?

That’s what a grant could do for your startup. And while small business owners may dream of receiving a grant to fund their startup, they may not be as plentiful or easy to get as you may think. However, if you know where to look and how to apply, you might be successful in securing free money for your business. 

There are grants for start-ups but they’re not going to fund your whole business. They might cover the costs of getting professional advice to create a business or financial plan, specific training, or investment in equipment. They’re aimed at getting your foot on the ladder – it’s still up to you to climb it.

Unlike loans, you don’t have to pay this money back. There’s no collateral that you’re required to put up, and you won’t need to pay fees or interest. The best part about this, is that the money is yours to keep, and you’ll never have to pay it back after using. We are partnered with the most willing companies that accept & set up your documents, giving you the best results. Our partners include SMME FINANCE & DTC
