Australia government grants intended to help fund starting a new business will specify as much in their program information. If not, they will be general enough in nature to allow for the starting of a new business as part of their mandate. If you do not find Australian grants that you can use for starting a new business, remember that there are loan options you may consider looking into to see if you are eligible to apply for them.
You can also take advantage of the Small Business Startup Assessment Tool below and see the tools and resources you need to succeed at launching your business. It takes just a minute and will also tell you if there may be any funding programs available.
