Dorset Gateway #BidBites Series

Dorset Gateway #BidBites Series

There is currently around £55 million of research and development grant funding in the UK to support the development of companies with innovative ideas that meet a market need – whether start-up or scale-up.

Our Dorset Gateway offers local businesses up to 40 hours of fully-funded specialist bid writing support.

Dorset Gateway will be hosting a live and free Q&A session at 12:00 on 3 April to conclude the #BidBites podcast series which starts on 30 March. During the Q&A questions will be welcomed on the podcast series or indeed anything bid writing related.

If you want to find out more or register to take part in the Q&A, visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bidbites-podcast-live-qa-session-registration-100413828464

The #BidBites podcast series will be a collection of five short audio bites which share bid writing hints, tips and hacks. 

These daily podcasts will help our local businesses improve their chances of winning funding when applying for grants.

These podcasts will cover:

  1. Milestone zero preparation is all

  2. Knowing Your Funder – improve your chances

  3. Build Your Team – it’s all about the right stuff!

  4. Answer the Question – it’s all about them.

  5. Review: Persevere, Pivot, Stop
