Hacking the Grant System for Fun & Profit
Hacking the Grant System talk by Dinesh Nair (@alphaque) & Chris Leong from Cradle.
“Grants are funds disbursed by one party (Grant Makers), often a Government Department, Corporation, Foundation or Trust, to a recipient, often (but not always) a nonprofit entity, educational institution, business or an individual. In order to receive a grant, some form of “Grant Writing” often referred to as either a proposal or an application is usually required.”
