5 ABOUT SMALL BUSINESS GRANTS Small business grants have been develoed to rovide sulementary financial suort to small businesses. They form art of the City of Melbourne s Business Develoment Fund, which directly suorts economic and business develoment in the City of Melbourne municiality. Grant objectives To encourage the establishment, growth and retention of sustainable businesses, including micro businesses, that enhance the City of Melbourne s reutation for innovation, creativity, business vitality, diversity, inclusiveness and environmental sustainability. To create emloyment oortunities and increase the level of business investment in the municiality. To suort innovative businesses that demonstrate solid market otential and a sound business model, including long-term financial viability. To increase the overall value and volume of exorts from the City of Melbourne municiality. To foster new artnershis and collaboration between businesses and business suort grous. The grants seek to encourage and suort new, creative and diverse business activities that will contribute to a thriving and cometitive business environment within the city. In addition, the rogram seeks to encourage a greater number of city-based businesses to engage and exand their exort activities. Case studies of revious reciients can be viewed at melbourne.vic.gov.au/grantsandsonsorshis What do we mean by innovation? Innovation is not invention, nor is it doing things slightly differently to the way others are doing them already or bundling together existing roducts and services. Innovation means doing something in a new, creative or novel way. It may involve imroving on an existing service or roduct in an original way that increases its utility or oens u new markets. It may mean that an idea is radically different, but equally it may mean that an idea addresses an everyday rocess in a revolutionary or original way. You could ask: what is the oint of difference between my idea and that of the enterrise next door? The City of Melbourne is looking for enterrises that indicate, through their innovation, that they can add to the city s economic roserity and diversity. In assessing whether your roosal is innovative, you might consider the following questions. Does your businesses or organisation: Satisfy a comelling and otentially global need? Target a well-defined niche market? Demonstrate a significant cometitive advantage over the medium term? Achieve high gross margins? Scale u to a significant degree? Articulate the roblem it is trying to solve and how it will do it? Innovation in Business Innovation in business is imortant because it is the rimary driver of cometitiveness for firms differentiating their roducts and services from those of cometitors Continuous innovation, or the reeated successful introduction of novel roducts and services, is the only sustainable strategy for survival and rogress in raidly changing and turbulent technological and market circumstances.
