Docklands businesses should apply

03 Aug 2010

Applications for the City of Melbourne’s 2010-11 small business grants have opened and Docklands businesses are encouraged to apply, despite none winning grants in the last two rounds.

The first round of small business grants, which were opened for application in February have been announced with a spice retailer, an electric bike company and an indigenous career and employment agency being among the winners.

A spokesperson for the City of Melbourne said four Docklands-based businesses did apply for a grant. However none were successful.

“The next round of grants is open until 13 August and is definitely worthwhile promoting to Docklands businesses,” the spokesperson said.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the grants had put Melbourne on the map as being a start-up capital for innovative businesses.

“In the 14 years that they have been on offer, we have seen how vital the City of Melbourne Small Business Grants have been in helping people establish and grow their own businesses,” Cr Doyle said.

The seven winning recipients in the first round, who together will receive almost $130,000 in grants, are made up of three start-up, two business expansion, one export entry and one business support services grants.

Applicants interested in applying for the 2010-11 Small Business Grants should visit http://www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/grantsandsponsorship for more information.
