How to carry out one or many fund requests?
Every organization, whether governmental or private, and every program have specific procedures for the deposit of fund requests.
In some cases, a fixed time frame is allocated annually for requests. Some accept requests year round, others have fixed deadlines, while other programs can only be requested once. Moreover, some just require you to complete an application form and to provide some documents, while others require a detailed business plan before analyzing your file.
Generally, the procedure to request assistance is available on the managing organization's website, otherwise you need to contact a consultant or a representative of the targeted organization to receive more complete details or work with a SAFEC advisor.
Can you present requests to more than one program?
Absolutely, and we encourage you to verify all the information on all the programs that can offer you assistance, whether financial or not. In most cases, a business is eligible for more than one assistance or financing opportunity.
Should I reveal all the financial information regarding my business when asking for financial assistance or financing from a government or private organization?
Definitely, and it is also possible, in some cases, to be obliged to divulge even personal information regarding the owners or shareholders of the business. We recommend that you always make sure to get all of your documents signed by a responsible party before submitting any financial assistance or fund requests to a private organization.
Even if government organizations adhere to a global agreement applied to all consultants, we highly recommend that you be vigilant nonetheless.
