A new feature is making it easier for entrepreneurs to re-apply to the Innovation Fund. Now you can copy an old application into the current funding cycle, giving you a head start completing the form.
We added this feature because we know that many entrepreneurs apply to the Innovation Fund a few times before getting funding. And while business owners have said their companies and their pitches get better with every application, it still can be time consuming to start the application from scratch every time. So we changed that.
Here's how it works:
When you log into your dashboard, you'll see a new link in the Application History called Reactivate.
Once you click the reactivate link, a message will pop up asking you to confirm the action and letting you know that you'll have to resubmit your financial workbook.
After you click continue, the old application will be on your dashboard in the current cycle, listed as In Progress. From here you can click continue to update and submit it for the current funding cycle.
We know you will continue to make your business better every time you move through the application process, but now you can focus your time on perfecting your pitch and presentation, instead of starting an application you've already completed once from scratch.
