Submitting a Concept Note
Companies wanting to apply for COMPETE Salone funding must initially complete a Concept Note
How to submit a Concept Note
The Concept Note is the first part of the application process. The Concept Note allows applicants to briefly present how their idea responds to the funding window requirements. A Concept Note is a brief outline of your proposed project. It is designed to provide the COMPETE Salone Investment Committee, which makes all the decisions on COMPETE Salone grants, with an overview of your business and proposed project. Those applicants that are successful at this stage will pass to the second stage of the competition where the Fund will ask applicants to submit a full business proposal according to the format provided by the COMPETE Salone team.
The first assessment of project Concept Notes is currently being undertaken and another intake of Concept Notes will be assessed in September 2020.
