You are encouraged to share an explanation of how you’ll achieve business success. It might include some mention of your market, your team, the things you’ve overcome so far, and the challenges you still face.
- Plans for the marketing support and funds raised. Tell us how you would use the marketing support offered as well as what the money raised would be used for. Be as detailed as you can.
