Is it difficult to apply for a Service Grant?

No. Our service grant application is simple. You simply download your grant application from our website (Click Here). Additionally, one of our team directors will follow up with you to schedule an office meeting with your highest level executives in order to discuss what he/she want to accomplish and when. This open discussion helps us to (1) learn and obtain a clear understanding of your vision, and (2) clarify all of your critical business challenges and (3) provide you with any assistance completing your grant application.

If you award us a Service Grant, when will it start?

Based on your grant application and scheduled meetings, our team makes recommendations to a Chief Business Strategist who will conduct an on-site Strategic Growth Analysis and answer any questions you may have. Our Chief Business Strategist makes the final recommendations to the Board of Directors & Advisory Committee about providing your firm with a Letter of Engagement and Service Agreement. This signals our intent to award a service grant. In most cases, this meeting usually leads to signing the Service Agreement. Our work begin after your grant application is completely processed, which typically takes 2-4 weeks.
